Something my roommates and I make all the time: Tacosagna.
Substitute queso dip and shredded three-cheese mexican mix for italian cheese mix. Use ground beef with taco seasoning mixed with salsa instead of red sauce. Add in refried beans, crumpled up taco shells or Doritos, salsa, and chipotle sauce. Top with sour cream, chives, and more cheese.
My three year old thanks you! I was a ramen noodle champ before I met my husband. (He was pretty grossed out that all I ate was ramen noodles and stewed tomatoes. So he started cooking for me.) He past away last year. Since cooking was his thing and something I dread, it’s been hard to not order delivery. It’s bad when your kid says, “Mommy, I don wanna pizza again.” Thank you for making it a little easier on both of us.
really, though, need to thank you. You gave me a bit of confidence to try myself in the kitchen and I didn’t make it explode. Now I’m sending my woman OUT of the kitchen because it is now a place of manly dominance (also, she’s better at D3 than I am :C )
I need moar D:
and you need to get published because your stuff is teh SHIZZLE
I made this a few days ago for my family, and they LOVED it!! I made it in a big dish so we’ve had leftovers for a few days and it blows our minds how it gets better and better each day. What I love most is that I can make it next year at college. Thank you so much for your comics; they’re hilarious and the food is tasty!
Congratulations on your book! I love the easy constructions. I must be a visual learner, because I don’ usually use recipes, but yours look scrumptious. Having just received this site from my wonderful son, Ross, I guess I will take the hint! He will be visiting this year. Plenty of time to practice. Thank you for this site.
I made this last night and it was really good except for the lasagna noodles. They were more undercooked than al dente. Next time I will soak the noodles in room temperature water for a few minutes before layering. Super easy recipe though. Tasted great!
I made this and ended up with a “cheese pie”. Can you provide more details about:
– how much sauce
– layer thickness (the sauce layers basically cooked down from 1/2″ to nothing)
– adding MEAT! and spinach!
I made this (with your original recipe red sauce) for my coworkers and roommate. Let’s just say everyone had seconds and your estimate that it feeds six people was right on. I was planning on buying your upcoming cookbook, but felt it was my duty as an informed consumer to make a recipe test first. Consider that book purchased! (Because it is.)
I know I’m late to the party, but I just made this today. It was fucking AWESOME. My note is, if you’re going to use sauce out of a jar like I did, make sure it’s something that has a little kick to it, as the cheese neutralizes weaker sauces a little bit. Thanks, mang! I whitelisted you on adblock for gratitude and stuff. THUMBS UP.
Made this a few weeks ago. I made the bolognese sauce from his earlier recipe (adding mushrooms and some other spice changes). I ended up adding about half a pound of cooked Italian sausage and about a cup or so of sliced olives. Turned out quite delicious.
