..... and I'm missing it, but I surely haven't been missing many meals.
While out of town last week, I did manage to eat one Chipotle chicken burrito (with extra-hot salsa--yum); one order of Pad Thai from my favorite Thai restaurant (all Pad Thai is not made equally); and one very delicious meal of Sesame Encrusted Ahi on a bed of gingered cabbage and jasmine rice.
On Saturday, we wandered up to the neighbor's for dinner and had a wonderful white lasagna with turkey. I managed to get the recipe and thought I'd share:
2 (10-ounce) packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
8 ounces lasagna noodles
2 ½ cups milk
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 teaspoon black ground pepper
1 (8-ounce) container ricotta cheese
1 1/2 cups chopped cooked turkey
3 TBS freshly grated Parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons dry bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- Preheat oven to 350*F.
- Cook frozen chopped spinach and lasagna noodles according to the package directions; drain.
- In a saucepan blend together milk and flour. Cook over low heat until thickened, stirring constantly. Season with salt and pepper. Mix half the sauce with the spinach and set aside.
- Pour a small amount of the remaining sauce into a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish. Alternate layers of noodles, spinach mixture, ricotta cheese, turkey and ending with the white sauce.
- Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese, dry bread crumbs, and Italian seasoning. Bake for 20 minutes, or until bubbly.
