Can I just tell you how excited I am about this Creamy Vegetable Lasagna? Because I AM PUMPED! And not just because it's so incredibly delicious (which it is) and not just because vegetable lasagna is one of my all time favorites....but because it means I finally have my oven back! Woo hoo!
In case you're wondering what in the world I'm talking about, we've been in the middle of a major home renovation for the past six weeks. Which has meant no kitchen, no living room, no table, and definitely no home cooked meals. And you know what? As much as I sometimes complain about making dinner (don't we all?) I'm honestly SO excited to have my kitchen back. I guess absence really does make the heart grow fonder!?
I'm excited to be able to make things like Blueberry Granola Muffins and Roasted Vegetable Enchiladas and Taco Pot Pie. All the things we've been missing for the past 6 weeks! And I'm SO excited about this Creamy Vegetable Lasagna....the first meal I made in our new kitchen. Have you ever had vegetable lasagna? I actually like it more than I like traditional lasagna, which is saying a LOT. I love the fact that you can load it up with all your favorite veggies....and the cream sauce? It's absolutely to die for. But what really makes Creamy Vegetable Lasagna SO amazing is, of course, the cheese.
I decided to pack in three different kinds of cheese, including the BEST Sartori Shredded Parmesan Cheese. I love that Sartori is a fourth generation, family-owned company based right here in Wisconsin! And I absolutely LOVE their cheese. I picked up everything I needed at my local Pick 'n Save (which, by the way, has all the best summer veggies right now)....and the rest? Well, the rest is delicious history.
This Creamy Vegetable Lasagna was gobbled up by my entire family....and I can't wait to make it again and again. ALL summer long! In my brand new kitchen. Not that I'm excited or anything.....
