So last night, I made a pizza out of a large whole-wheat pita round, pesto, peppers, onions, basil, sundried tomatoes and feta. It's a creation that my commonlaw spouseoid came up with, and I freakin' love it. Not only is it clean, but it's SO DELICIOUS!!!
But tonight... I'm going to try a dish I've never attempted before.
Mission: Lasagna!! (I've only ever had it a handful of times, I don't even know if I like it. But... here we go!)
Recipe: Chicken and Spinach Lasagna.
Source: "The Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook 2" by Tosca Reno.
Prep time: 30 minutes.
Cooking time: 90 minutes.
Okay, first of all, the prep time is about 80% true, 20% LIES AND DECEIT, if you do it the proper clean eating way. Because it calls for yogurt cheese and clean marinara, both of these had to be made before-hand.
Yogurt cheese: 24 hours
Clean Marinara: 40 minutes.... unless you count the fact that I made the clean tomato sauce before hand... which was about a half an hour a long time ago. Seriously. I don't even know how I had the time. Just... just use the canned, for the love of Gawd! (I DO love knowing that EVERYTHING was from scratch though!)
*UPDATE: While the lasagna is baking in the oven for an hour, and smelling effin' delicious, I am making Spicy Clean BBQ Sauce. This is in preparation for this Sunday's upcoming New Thing: BBQ PORK RIBS!!! (both from Eat-Clean Cookbook 2). I'm excited, I've NEVER made ribs before. The more I prepare ahead of time, the easier it is!
**UPDATE: Sooo I was GOING to attach a picture of a beautiful square of lasagna, on a plate, with the whole grated parm cheese and the little basil leaf and the hey hey hey. But the damned thing smelled SO GOOD and I was SO HUNGRY that we just dove right in. It was delicious!!
So here are the remnants. Upside? LEFTOVERS!!!
