I guess it’s really more of a monthly roundup after all! It’s been super busy around here since Christmas. You too? I thought so! You might not’ve had time to read every single post so hopefully this will gather them all in one place for you.
Doesn’t that just warm your heart on these cold winter days? Hot, cheesy and wonderful, a classic lasagna with homemade meatballs and sauce and a creamy layer of Béchamel underneath to make it extra wonderful. Don’t be scared by Béchamel sauce. It’s a super easy white sauce with a little nutmeg added in. It adds a wonderful richness to the lasagna that takes a classic comfort food to a whole new level. Once you try it, you may never go back!
I got to share over at a couple different websites and published 3 posts right here in my own little corner of the internet. I’m taking a moment to put links to this week’s posts on one page so you’ll have them all in one place.
Every month, I get to share on some wonderful websites with women in all stages of life: moms, single women, empty nesters, you name it. I’m thrilled to be part of a community of writing women who share honestly from their hearts and deep life experiences. We write about all sorts of different topics but all relevant to what it means to be a woman in today’s world.
And amazingly, married to an Italian as I am, there is no red sauce, no ricotta, no mozzarella but boy, oh boy is there incredible flavor. Savory bites of mushroom, creamy nutmeg scented béchamel (which is just a fancy name for white sauce), a hint of garlic and lots of freshly grated parmesan cheese. It’s not low calorie but it might just make you swoon. It freezes brilliantly if you have some left over. Which I sincerely doubt. It’s the perfect vegetarian option for your Thanksgiving feast. Rich and creamy and supremely decadent. Even the turkey lovers will want a piece!
Italian comfort food! Easy, healthy, homey, delicious. All you need is Italian sausage, greens and beans of your choice, some garlic, onion and chicken broth. This is the perfect Sunday night supper.
