The March 2009 challenge is hosted by Mary of Beans and Caviar, Melinda of Melbourne Larder and Enza of Io Da Grande. They have chosen Lasagne of Emilia-Romagna from The Splendid Table by Lynne Rossetto Kasper as the challenge.
I finally made it I !! In the last days I've been so busy that I hadn't realized the posting date had changed !! I make lasagne a lot but, usually I use vegetables and what I have handy at the moment so This was a change for me. But I had an angel beside me : Cinzia ! As I mentioned I got the conservation job on the beautifully embroidered liturgical vestment but
I must finish it by the 30th of April so I'm working very long hours and when Cinzia found out I was so late for the lasagne she made a wonderful vegetarian ragù for me !!!
Here is her recipe :
1 onion minced 2 small carrots minced 2 celery stalks minced 500 gr tofu minced 1,5 liters tomato puree extra virgin olive oil
Sautee the vegetables in the oil, add the tofu and salt, pepper, nutmeg and a clove after 10 minutes add the tomato and cook for 20 minutes.
