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!
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.

Plus, your house will smell fantastic while it’s cooking. (Excuse me while I lick my fingers.) Salud!
