Because, sometimes a girl just wants pasta. Stacked. With alfredo sauce bubbling all around it. NYUM!
And because it’s Sunday and Sundays should be decadent.

Hello and HAPPY Sunday, friends! How is your weekend treating you? How was your Saturday night? We went to a Mariano’s last night – wooot wooot! hard core partiers!! *insert sarcasm emoji* – and after sampling all the free food, I was simply stuffed. Our dining-out dinner plans didn’t even happen because I was so full.

If I may ask, why does free food taste SOOOO much better? And why do people stop at just ONE sample? I took like three bacon-wrapped somethings, four different cheesecakes, like a dozen little smokies wrapped in cheese, and a few mini burritos to-go. Them things were GOOD! I washed it all down with a bottle of Evolution’s green juice. It’s all about that balance. 😉

Also. During this beautiful Summer season all I want are crisp, fresh things. Things like popsicles and shrimp and salad…! However, once in a while, I start to crave cheese soup and casseroles. Which makes me think that I’m a complete weirdo because THIS is Indiana – The 8-months-of-Winter-State-Of-Indiana. I feel like telling myself to get out there and GRILL every day, buuuuut I really, reaaaaalllly wanted a big chunk of creamy, cheesy lasagna. So I made it happen and it was as beautiful and as delicious as I had imagined it.

Honestly, I’m just trying to make a case as to why YOU should turn on the oven in the middle of July.

We’re starting with our homemade LIGHTENED-UP (again, balance :-D) Alfredo Sauce. Theeeen, our pretty little sauce will swim around those delicious four-cheese ravioli, with layers of fresh spinach in between each layer, and a crispy mixture of panko crumbs-and-cheese to top it all off. Amazing, right?!? RIGHT!

Taking this stacked beauty out of the oven will have boys (read; my husband) jumping up and down in your kitchen. It smells great, it’s full of flavor pockets, and there’s a delicious tang from the alfredo sauce. The crispy crumb-topping is a waaaay delicious bonus!

Since it’s summer, adding a dollop of plain yogurt on top of your slice is totally the right move. Just a thought. I always do it.

ENJOY!

    1. This looks so decadent and yet it’s healthy, too. I like the idea above of adding some shredded chicken. I can’t wait to try this one, spinach and cheese are family favorites.

    2. Free Food= the best. I somehow scored a pass to the Fine Food Show and left with a stomach ache and smelling like prosciutto and antipasto.

      This lasagna looks beyond delicious. You also, once again, found a way to add yogurt 😀

      This looks so amazing! We will be trying this soon because my family goes crazy for alfredo! The only disagreement we have when cook alfredo is whether or not to put broccoli in in or serve it on the side. I might add some shredded chicken (sorry vegetarians ) to it.

    4. Yup. I don’t even care that it’s like a million degrees outside. Those lasagna cravings don’t just go away!! So ummm, yeah needless to say THIS beauty of a lasagna is going on the menu! Can’t get enough of all that multiple cheese goodness!
