turkey lasagne

February 23, 2010

I’m having an experiment: traditional lasagne vs. healthy lasagne.

I should begin this post with a warning: this here is not a diet-friendly lasagne. This is a full-fat, cheese-laden, juicy as they come lasagne. And it’s blazin-delicious.

I used this recipe from Ina Garten from the Food Network which as you will see is basically Cheese Fest 2010:


This is the ricotta, parmesan, parsley, egg, salt and pepper in pre-mix up mode. Beautious:

Crusty sourdough rolls, a big salad and some delicious red wine are about the only way I think you should enjoy lasagne. That and a mediterranean view, but I’ll take what I can.

Despite the cheese fest, this recipe actually does not have horrible nutritional value. I’m not saying you should eat it every week but still… However, because I like to conduct fun experiments, I will be trying out my own healthy version of this recipe soon and I’ll be sure to post it!

Do you enjoy full-fat versions of dishes like this or do you prefer to keep it healthy?
Sometimes I like to make healthy substitutes but since I generally eat healthily, I am also very happy making and eating mind-blowingly delicious full-fat calorific delights.
