With Christmas right around the corner, I can’t help but start to think about lasagna. Now, this might seem like a strange train of thought to you, but hey I’m a strange person so you’ll have to excuse it (or not, your choice I suppose). Anyhow, lasagna is a traditional Christmas dish where I come from and I think it’s far superior to oh, say, ham or roast turkey. Turkey is for Thanksgiving as far as I’m concerned, but I suppose if you live across the pond and you don’t have Thanksgiving you need an excuse to roast up a turkey and then Christmas seems like a fine time to do that. And well don’t even get me started on ham. Ham? How is that festive? It’s a
pig, er big hunk of lunch meat! And what part of the pig does that even come from anyway? It’s bum? It can’t be it’s bum it’s got a big ‘ol bone in the middle of it…is it a giant thigh? I don’t know and I’m not sure I want to.
So when a coworker was on a pumpkin baking spree a few weeks ago I thought, hey do you know what would be really delicious? Pumpkin Lasagna. She was kind enough to provide me a couple cans of the coveted squash (canned pumpkin isn’t a staple on shelves round these parts).
