I have really been looking forward to this weekend because it’s my little cousin’s 10th birthday!  Over the past 8 months, I’ve grown really close to my aunt (my mom’s youngest sister) and her family.  It’s been so fun seeing them on the weekends and hanging out in Phoenix and Tucson! 

When I got to Phoenix today, my aunt had already started making dinner…lasagna!  I still learned a few tips and tricks along the way.

Tip 1: Mix ricotta cheese in with fresh spinach and add a couple of pinches of nutmeg (something simple that makes a huge difference).  This mixture adds a fresh, delicious layer and complements the sauce well.

Tip 2:  Add some seasoning to the cheese before you sprinkle on the lasagna.  My aunt used garlic salt and black pepper.

Tip 3:  Fresh veggies and veggie ground “meat” add great texture to bottled tomato sauce.

Tip 4:  Sweet red wine pairs well with Italian food, especially lasagna. 🙂

Ok, I’m off to hang with the fam!  My cousin’s party tomorrow is at a laser tag venue!  I am SO excited because I will be playing. 🙂  I’ll fill you in on all the fun tomorrow.  Good night!
