This recipe is courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis. It's especially popular with vegetarian guests... but a hit with carnivores too. There's no red sauce... it's entirely different from traditional lasagna... but oh so good!
Cook's Note:The no-boil lasagna noodles can be substituted with fresh spinach lasagna sheets. Look for fresh lasagna sheets in the refrigerated section of specialty markets.
There's nothing like homemade stock and it's not difficult to make! Broth is good, but it’s not the same. A well prepared stock can make the difference between a good meal and a great meal. Some may find this recipe to be too time consuming; those who enjoy cooking will appreciate their efforts. Skip the roasting step for a lighter stock, but if you want a deeper color and a richer taste, roasting is the way to go!
I'm told this dessert tastes just like the Panna Cotta at Macaroni Grill. I saw it prepared this way by Giada De Laurentiis on Everyday Italian. No matter the origin, this Italian "cooked cream" is comfort food at its best.
Using bottled salad dressing, my cousin put a twist on a recipe I have used for years and came up with this super easy crowd pleaser. We have this with roasted potatoes and Greek salad all summer... and the kids love it!
