When you have a big family, like I do, it`s nice to be alone sometimes.
So it was the case, yesterday evening.
I took advantage of this situation and invited Tizi over for a little candle light dinner.
I sliced and roasted an eggplant and a zucchini with a little olive oil.
I cooked a nice tomato sauce, the secret is to let it simmer for at least 1 hour, to get the best taste.
And I made a bèchamel sauce (with butter, flour and milk).
Guess what I made?
That`s right, a Lasagne.
I love Lasagne, but whenever I make it, I feel frustrated because my Moms is always better.
So, I decided to make my own Lasagne, without meat but with eggplant and zucchini.
I just layered bèchamel sauce, pastry sheets, tomato sauce and vegetables, sprinkled some grated parmesan on top and put it in the oven for 35 minutes.
Well, I had kind of a nervous breakdown, when I looked in the Lasagne pastry sheet box and only found 4 sheets. We normally have those around, but nooo, not this time!
The stores were already closed and I just wanted to cry!
But hey, cooking means improvising and being creative!
So, I got up , broke the 4 sheets in little pieces and made a Lasagne with just two layers.
And it was delicious.
