Lay out those pretty plates, set out those forks. This is one holiday dinner everyone will want to dig right into!
Who says you've gotta serve up a holiday ham for Christmas? Save yourself some of the pennies and dimes that you'd spend on a hunk of pork, and bake up a batch of this beautiful red and green Holiday Lasagna
, made with fresh spinach and basil and loads of pure yumminess.
Here's how you can get your kitchen singing the Christmas carols in Italian by making a pan of this splendid lasagna.
Create a simple white sauce using butter, milk, and flour.
Add fresh spinach and basil to your white sauce, then blend it until finely chopped to create a holiday green sauce.
Grab a can of Muir Glen Crushed Tomatoes with Basil.
Toss that tomato sauce into a pan of fresh cooked Italian Sausage. Add a few splendid herbs, and a handful of brown sugar. Grab a spoon. You know you're gonna wanna take a taste.
Layer your lasagna together. Red, green, red.
Deck the halls. Or is that bowls? Oh heck, just grab someone and have them stand under your lasagna pan. This is better than mistletoe. It's got garlic, duh.
Bake your lasagna until it's bubbling around the edges and a nice, golden brown on top.
Let your lasagna cool a bit to ensure nice, even slices that stack up as pretty as a pack of presents.
