This is in the latest edition of Cottage Living magazine. Though the Gouda gives it a gourmet taste, you can't get much easier than this perfect summer dish. Make it ahead and serve for your next party or outdoor barbecue.
I created this vegetarian lasagna after getting sick of the same old recipe. Turns out it was a winner, and my husband can't stop raving about how much it taste likes his grandmother's lasagna, but with a twist. The marinara sauce also makes a good quick sauce for any pasta dish.
This is always a hit for potlucks in the summer, but my husband loves for me to make it at home all the time. I like to pair it with falafel balls, stir fried tofu, or any other Greek, middle eastern, or vegetarian dish. It taste delicious served on a bed of crisp, whole romaine leaves for a light lunch or dinner. Adjust the jalapeno pepper to taste. Enjoy!
I created this recipe as a healthy, low fat meal for my vegetarian husband and I. Not only does the spinach and chickpeas provide vital vitamins and minerals, the chickpeas are good source of veggie protein. Serving this over a bed of couscous makes this a complete Moroccan dish. You can substitute the pre-packaged couscous if you like, though I prefer to buy it in the bulk containers and measure out the amount I want to use. This would be delicious with a dollop of light plain yogurt on top to temper the spice. Enjoy!
