Isn’t that the title to a Beatles song?
Oh wait that song is actually “Let It Be” – still… both are words of wisdom!
In my case “let it rest” usually refers to some big cut of meat like a roast or chicken or something, but in this case it refers to lasagna!
Letting lasagna rest is a must for a clean, neat cut and so you don’t burn the roof off your mouth!
This lasagna was inspired by the green baking dish it was made in. I received it for Christmas this year from Aunt Barbara and I have been cooking in it a couple of times a week ever since! Mac and cheese, lasagna, you name it! How did I ever live without this perfectly sized dish with handles!!
I used standard lasagna protocol here – nothing crazy or exotic. 3-4 layers of regular meat sauce, ricotta and noodles. This time I used standard “boil first” noodles, but I have done it both ways… here and here.
