I went all out with this dishโ€ฆeven making my own cheese days ahead. I wanted Lasagna bad and traveling to the northern region of Italy for the original recipe hiding in some grannyโ€™s cupboard was out of the question. So I turned my kitchen into Little Italy and voilรก: fresh Farmerโ€™s Cheese, made-from-scratch marinara and homemade fresh duck egg lasagna noodles! Oh my Iโ€™ve went and done it now ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿด๐Ÿท

I had so much fun cooking our MNF dinner. We hosted my sister Lindsay and her boyfriend Steven over for a wonderful homemade Lasagna dish!

For the homemade fresh lasagna noodles recipe refer to my previous post ๐Ÿ‘‰

http://thefullbellydiaries.tumblr.com/post/31805751421/yesterday-i-decided-to-roll-out-my-own-hand-rolled

I used this recipe for the sauce because I am not a fan of ricotta or cottage cheese!ย ๐Ÿ‘‰

http://www.great-chicago-italian-recipes.com/beef_lasagna.html

The Lasagna was beyond delicious! It had fresh basil and parsley from my indoor garden, and I used local homemade blueberry wine as the red wine reduction! Served with bacon, ham & turkey salad. Amazeballs!๐Ÿด๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ…

Yesterday I decided to make my own hand rolled lasagna pasta. I’ve made raviolis before so I knew it wasn’t a task I couldn’t handle. Besides, nothing beats fresh made pasta.ย 

I used this recipe for the dough:ย 
http://www.happystove.com/recipe/255/How+To+Make+Homemade+Flat+Lasagna+Sheets/

It said it was a 80-minute process. I started making the dough around 4:30. After forming the ball, it sat in plastic wrap for an hour or so. Around 6 o’clock I started rolling it out into lasagna pieces…talk about a hassle. I released all of my built up stress and frustration out on that rolling pin. No fancy smancy Italian pasta machine here. It took every ounce of strength in my bony arms to get it the desired thinness, but after I burned unnecessary calories my lasagna noodles were piling up on me! I rolled wayy to much for my pan, needless to say we will be having chicken & pastry soon ;)

But don’t let my long paragraph on dough making scare you. It really is an rewarding experience. After boiling ‘MY’ noodles to al dentรจ, and realizing that this whole process really worked and my pasta looked better than that non-French/Italian dried store bought stuff in boxes…I forgot about how much effort I put into my culinary dish.ย 

Homemade, fresh pasta…try it sometime!ย

Prep work for my ravioli dinner! I started the marinara in the crockpot around noon and cooked it on low until 5:00 when I finally put the meatballs in.
Then I boiled the 5-cheese raviolis in salted, garlic water and toasted some bread with mozzarella cheese & basil…voilร  ๐Ÿ’š
