Crunchy Oatmeal Peanut Butter Oats ‘n Honey Bars

Yup! Just like Nature Valley’s, but better! Now I know I posted these copycat Nature Valley Oat’s ‘n Honey Bars a few months ago, but those were just the original. I mean we love the original over here, but we equally love the peanut butter. Really though, did you think we wouldn’t?  They’re sweet, crunchy peanut […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Fudge Brownie Ice Cream

Ugh. It is a complete white out right now. Like white as can be, snow coming down so hard. Been going strong all day. It’s the perfect weather for a nice cold ice cream cone! Just perfect! Seriously though, the last time I made ice cream it was also snowing. Whats up? Colorado you can […]

Crockpot Carnitas Tortilla Burrito Bowl

I have a confession. I really don’t like my slow cooker. Maybe it is just my very cheap, one setting crockpot or maybe I just hate cleaning out the huge bowl. Yeah, that’s probably it. I dread cleaning out that bowl.

Banh Mi Asian Burgers

I am going to be honest. I have no idea how to pronounce Banh Mi. My spelling and reading abilities are not the best. I have always struggled with spelling. I am honestly the worst. Let’s just say that I use google and spell check a lot. Although, spell check can’t normally figure out what […]

Fajita Chicken and Enchilada Pasta

Here’s the thing. I had to make a decision. We all know how much I hate decisions. Honestly, I can’t make the littlest decision for the life of me. Big life decisions I am ok with. It’s the little decisions that really get me. Decisions like cookies or brownies, white background or black background for […]

  • I have cheesy pasta things to share today in the form of this Crispy Prosciutto White Lasagna. It’s filled with a creamy Béchamel sauce and layered with spinach, ricotta, provolone, and then topped with prosciutto just before baking, which allows it to get nice and crispy in the oven. So. Good. You need to make this. Preferably very soon or maybe for your next holiday dinner? Either works. Full recipe below. .
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt + pepper
1/4 cup flour
2 cups whole milk
2 cups chicken or veggie broth
1 cup each shredded mozzarella + parmesan
2 cups whole milk ricotta
2 cups shredded provolone
2 packages frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1 box no-boil lasagna noodles
3 ounces prosciutto, torn
.
Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the garlic, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper and cook 30 seconds. Whisk in the flour and cook for about 1 minute. Add the milk and broth. Bring to a boil and stir for 1 minute. Stir in the mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese. .
Combine the ricotta, provolone and spinach. Spread 1/4 of the cheese sauce in the bottom of a greased baking dish. Top with 3-4 lasagna sheets. Spread with 1/2 the ricotta cheese mixture and then another 1/4 of the cheese sauce. Repeat the layers. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese. Arrange the prosciutto on top. Bake at 350, uncovered for 45 minutes. Let stand 20 minutes before serving (right, right). Enjoy!! #feedfeed #foodandwine #f52grams #buzzfeast #video #christmas #imsomartha #CLkitchen #howiholiday
