I'm not sure if it was the ricotta cheese, turkey meat, or pain killers but.. something about my Mom's lasagna inspired me. So, I guess this is my way of saying.. stay tuned for a lasagna-inspired dish.
Although I can't give you my Mom's lasagna recipe.. I will, however, provide a few tips to spice up your existing lasagna recipe.
Tip 1: In the ricotta cheese mixture.. it is typical to have parsley, ricotta, and an egg. I would suggest adding lemon zest and a couple pinches of nutmeg. It will give your dish that "hmm-factor".
Tip 2: In the meat mixture... I would definitely suggest adding a grated or minced clove of garlic - in addition to the meat and tomato sauce. If you do not have a head of garlic, try garlic or onion powder.
Tip 3: Switch up the cheese! The typical lasagna cheese is mozzarella. If you are up for a burst of flavor and total change from the average pan of lasagna.. then grab some feta or bleu cheese and sprinkle it in with mozzarella. Both of these cheeses pack a huge punch so it should definitely be used sparingly.
