congrats, have a lasagna

Being Italian, most occasions (ok, all) involve food. Regardless of the situation, we firmly believe food is the answer:

It’s a girl! I’ll drop off some dinner. I’m so sorry for your loss. Let me bring some food over later. Congrats on the new digs! Don’t worry about lunch, I have it covered. Party at 3? Let me bring a side. Are you feeling better? What can you eat while you’re recovering?

It’s not that there’s a lack of words to convey how we’re feeling (I don’t think anyone would ever accuse me of that!). But for whatever reason, food is our language of choice and at least for me, a small way that I can pitch in and help. And my dish of choice happens to be a lasagna. It’s easy to make and deliver. Simple to heat for the recipient. Pairs great with just a salad and wine. Feeds many. Even better the next day. And who doesn’t enjoy some homeade lasagna?

Here’s my go-to recipe. I’ve been making it for said occasions since I first saw it in Food & Wine. It’s a hit – my family loves it and it seems to be well-received by others, too. So if you find yourself in need to make and take a dish to someone, I highly recommend this sausage and three cheese lasagna.
