When Hubby Cooks For The Cook

There you have it a statistic broken proving that hubby can cook.  Don’t be so surprised ladies, men have more hidden talents then we have given them credit for, but its truly a treat when the chef of the house can take a back sit and be pampered with something delicious.

Tonights feature was Lefto-Sangia.  What’s that?  Well, its a hodgepodge of what I had left in the refrigerator.  Although at first I was scared wondering what was going on in the kitchen I am surely surprised at the delicious meal I had before me.

I’ll have to update this post one day when I figure out what the true ingredients were but from my recollection on what was in the fridge here goes.

Servings: 2 | Prep Time: 15 mins | Total Time: 20 mins

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 pieces lasagna (any brand or homemade)
  • 8 oz pasta sauce (any flavor of your chosen or homemade)
  • 1/4 lb ground beef
  • 3 tbsp oregano
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 deep pot of water
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 6 oz ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a large size pot boil about 9 to 12 quarts of water and boil
  2. Add about 2 pinches of salt (I prefer sea salt)
  3. Add 1 tbsp olive oil
  4. Add all 12 pieces of lasagna; stir for 1st minute and boil for 9 mins
    1. Do not cover the entire pot or it will bubble so let it breath a bit
  5. While the lasagna is cooking cook the ground beef in a pan
  6. Add 1/2 tsp salt, pepper and oregano
  7. Add 1/2 tsp olive oil
  8. Cook meat about 7-10 mins stirring occasionally making sure meat is fully cooked.
  9. Plate, serve and enjoy!

Notes:

Enjoy a dinner for 2 😉
