Spaghetti Lasagne and Kale

spaghetti and chard, organic

I love lasagne, but the heavy cheese content and the time it takes to make it . . . well, lazy bones here . . . so this is what I do instead. I call it spaghetti lasagne, but it is really neither one. I mix the ingredients up as I eat them rather than baking it in a big pan. It’s like having the best of all worlds.

The bow tie pastas have a dollop of sour cream, a sprinkling of Parmesan, and some Italian Seasoning. I grate up small amounts of Parmesan and Mozzarella at a time and let the colorful Pyrex containers keep the leftover gratings for next time.

The kale was just lovely – smooth as velvet!

And, yes . . . I shared that big pile of faux bread sticks!

  1. You can just call it a “deconstructed” lasagna, and voila, you’re a top chef! 😀

  2. Looks great – I’ve never had Kale – but I’d guess it’s good for us. Dark leafy green. Do you just steam it? And what to you put on it – butter, salt and pepper? Or a little splash of wine vinegar? I might get some.

      We love kale. Get organic if you see it. Sometimes I put butter on it, but with the heavy tomato sauce, the soft nuance of butter would be lost. With a gentler main course, butter would be my choice.

      Another favorite way to eat it is mixed in with pasta and an egg scrambled on the side and then mixed in. A bit of white, extra sharp Cheddar melts delightfully, giving a smooth, delicious flavor that you won’t be able to get out of your mind! A light seasoning of your choice – maybe dill or tarragon – just adds to the gloriousness of it!

    Deconstructed lasagna indeed. It does make sense since all ingredients usually end up at the same meeting point anyway. It’s the illusion of taste, that makes us cook elaborate things but at the end of the day what matters is whether the meal was balanced or not. Maybe I should just start eating, everything deconstructed LOL!
