dinner with friends

We had dinner with friends this week.  I made dinner and we took it to their home.

I made bread:

And garlic butter:

And lasagne.  Lasagne is one of those things that is easy but time consuming that I make.  I may laugh here and say what else is new!


1 pound homemade pasta noodles (2 eggs, 2 cups of flour, two pinches of salt, water)

1 batch of spaghetti sauce (four to six cups)

1 batch of béchamel sauce (made with four cups of milk)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.   In your baking dish, spread béchamel sauce on the bottom.  Put a layer on noodles (I do not cook, just use a lot of sauce).  Add a layer of pasta sauce.  Add a layer of bechamel sauce.  Repeat until your pan is full, ending with sauce.  I try to make sure all the noodles are covered.

Bake for one and half hour.

You can add other things to the lasagna.  I added spinach to the pasta sauce and mozzarella cheese between the layers.  I have served this just plain with noodles and sauces.  I know when I put this on the table in front of a group of friends I should just not expect to have anything leftover.  Unless of course, it is the roasting pan!  We had no leftovers from this dish and everyone was trying to save room for our friends FABULOUS chocolate chip cookies.  Good intentions and such you know!
