Today’s Menu: Lasagna with Meat and Sauce w/ Texas Toast (Light)

 

 

To start this morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly sunny and 85 degrees outside. After Lunch a High School friend of mine came over and he helped me do some work on my Hoveround. I had to replace the whole joy stick component. And you might know we had to dis assemble half the chair to change it! It took most of the afternoon but we finally got changed. I’m so lucky to have a good friend like him! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Stouffer’s Lasagna with Meat and Sauce w/ Texas Toast (Light).

 

 

I had picked up a box of Stouffer’s Lasagna with Meat and Sauce at Meijer and had it in the freezer. I purchased the Large Size, about 2 1/2 servings. I’m also baking a few slices of the New York Bakery Texas Toast – Lite.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it s very easy. It comes frozen and to prepare it; Preheat the oven to 350°F. Leave the film on tray, but do not vent. Place the tray on a baking sheet on the center rack of the oven. Cook 56 Minutes. Remove baking sheet from oven. Let stand 1 Minute and Dinner is ready. I really enjoy this Lasagna! Plenty of Sauce and Meat and the Noodles are good size and tender. One easy way to have a Lasagna Dinner! The Lasagna is 260 calories and 25 net carbs per serving.

 

 

 

 


I also baked a slice of New York Bakery Lite Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta

 

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. After my Tea I stated a load of laundry and then headed out to Walmart. Didn’t need much, just something to do. After Lunch I got the cart out and grabbed a rake and leaf blower and raked the back yard. Sprayed for weeds along the back along the woods. I love the warm weather and getting out and doing things around the yard! It was mostly Sunny and 91 degrees out, a bit more humid out.

For Dinner tonight its leftovers! Had a container of the Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta in the freezer that I sat in the fridge overnight to thaw. Come Dinner time I heated up the leftover Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta. I reheat in a small sauce pan. I’ve left the original post below for description. Enjoy!

 

 

 

The Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta has two of my favorites in it, pasta and pizza! The box contains 1 can of Pizza Sauce w/ Pepperoni and Sausage and 1 Pouch of Rotini Pasta. I also added a few slices of Turkey Pepperoni and sliced Portabello Mushrooms to the mix. For the preparation you can bake it or prepare it on the stove top, which is how I prepared it. Add 1 cup of water, stir and mix, and simmer and you have your dinner! This came out fantastic! Really had a good Pizza flavor to it and excellent Sauce! The Sauce with the Mushrooms, Sausage, and Pepperoni provides the great flavoring. Easily prepared and makes a hearty and delicious meal. I know it’s a boxed meal, I can’t help it. It’s always been a favorite of mine since the first time I tried it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Along with the Pizza Pasta I had a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Mostly Sunny and 72 degrees out today. We went to pick up the vacuum at repair shop and then I dropped Mom off back at home and went to the Bank and ran an errand. Back home as I was coming down the street I seen a neighbor run over to our house. I pulled up and Mom had tripped and fell in the driveway. I didn’t want to move her because she said her shoulder and left hip were hurting. I called 911 and they were here in about 5 minutes or so. They got her up and sat her in a chair. She had bruises on left arm and a scrape on her left knee. She wouldn’t go the hospital so they helped her into the house. Our 911 Responders in this area are the best, thank you guys! They told me to call them back and they would take her to the hospital if needed. She’s sore but doing good and nothing broken! So anyway not a lot of time to cook so she said she would like to have a Pizza.

One of America’s Favorites – Lasagne

June 3, 2019 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Baked meat lasagne

Lasagne are a type of wide, flat pasta, possibly one of the oldest types of pasta. Lasagne, or the singular lasagna, commonly refers to a culinary dish made with stacked layers of pasta alternated with sauces and ingredients such as meats, vegetables and cheese, and sometimes topped with melted grated cheese. Typically, the cooked pasta is assembled with the other ingredients and then baked in an oven. The resulting lasagne casserole is cut into single-serving square portions.

Lasagne originated in Italy during the Middle Ages and has traditionally been ascribed to the city of Naples. The first recorded recipe was set down in the early 14th-century Liber de Coquina (The Book of Cookery). It bore only a slight resemblance to the later traditional form of lasagne, featuring a fermented dough flattened into a thin sheet, boiled, sprinkled with cheese and spices, and then eaten with the use of a small pointed stick. Recipes written in the century following the Liber de Coquina recommended boiling the pasta in chicken broth and dressing it with cheese and chicken fat. In a recipe adapted for the Lenten fast, walnuts were recommended.

The traditional lasagne of Naples, lasagne di carnevale, is layered with local sausage, small fried meatballs, hard-boiled eggs, ricotta and mozzarella cheeses, and sauced with a Neapolitan ragù, a meat sauce. Lasagne al forno, layered with a thicker ragù and Béchamel sauce, and corresponding to the most common version of the dish outside Italy, is traditionally associated with the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. In other regions, lasagne can be made with various combinations of ricotta or mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce, meats (e.g., ground beef, pork or chicken), and vegetables (e.g., spinach, zucchini, olives, mushrooms), and the dish is typically flavoured with wine, garlic, onion, and oregano. In all cases, the lasagne is oven-baked (al forno).

Traditionally, pasta dough prepared in Southern Italy used semolina and water; in the northern regions, where semolina was not available, flour and eggs were used. In modern Italy, since the only type of wheat allowed for commercially sold pasta is durum wheat, commercial lasagne are made of semolina from durum wheat.

Emilia-Romagna’s intensive farming economy in the northern region of Italy results in plentiful dairy and meat products, and a commonality in regional cooking – more so than the olive oil found in southern regions of Italy. Pastas from Emilia-Romagna and its capital, Bologna, are almost always served with a ragù, a thick sauce made from ingredients such as onions, carrots, finely ground pork and beef, celery, butter, and tomatoes.

Slice of lasagne with green salad and red cherry tomatoes

In Ancient Rome, there was a dish similar to a traditional lasagne called lasana or lasanum (Latin for ‘container’ or ‘pot’) described in the book De re coquinaria by Marcus Gavius Apicius, but the word could have a more ancient origin. The first theory is that lasagne comes from Greek λάγανον (laganon), a flat sheet of pasta dough cut into strips. The word λαγάνα (lagana) is still used in Greek to mean a flat thin type of unleavened bread baked for the holiday Clean Monday.

Another theory is that the word lasagne comes from the Greek λάσανα (lasana) or λάσανον (lasanon) meaning ‘trivet’, ‘stand for a pot’ or ‘chamber pot’. The Romans borrowed the word as lasanum, meaning ‘cooking pot’. The Italians used the word to refer to the cookware in which lasagne is made. Later, the food took on the name of the serving dish.

Another proposed link, or reference, is the 14th-century English dish loseyn as described in The Forme of Cury, a cookbook prepared by “the chief Master Cooks of King Richard II”, which included English recipes as well as dishes influenced by Spanish, French, Italian, and Arab cuisines. This dish has similarities to modern lasagne in both its recipe, which features a layering of ingredients between pasta sheets, and its name. An important difference is the lack of tomatoes, which did not arrive in Europe until after Columbus reached America in 1492. The earliest discussion of the tomato in European literature appeared in a herbal written in 1544 by Pietro Andrea Mattioli, while the earliest cookbook found with tomato recipes was published in Naples in 1692, but the author had apparently obtained these recipes from Spanish sources.

As with most other types of pasta, the Italian word is a plural form: lasagne meaning more than one sheet of lasagna, though in many other languages a derivative of the singular word lasagna is used for the popular baked pasta dish. Regional usage in Italy, when referring to the baked dish, favours the plural form lasagne in the north of the country and the singular lasagna in the south. The former, plural usage has influenced the usual spelling found in British English, while the southern Italian, singular usage has influenced the spelling often used in American English.
