Yesterday I decided I wanted lasagna for dinner...but what else is new? Checked the pantry and discovered that I only had two lasagna noodles. OOPS!! Sent the neighbor a text asking if she had any. Nope. What to do...what to do. Thought about it for a couple minutes and this is what I came up with, and it came out really well!!

Boiled the two lasagna noodles and butchered them trying to cover the bottom of the pan as best I could. Homemade sauce first then the butchered noodles

Add a bunch of mozz. parm, and Romano cheese

Here's where the "hybrid" concept comes in. Only had the two lasagna noodles so used egg noddles for the rest

Another layer of marinara, sausage, and cheese

The idea of putting the lasagna noodles on the bottom was in hopes of being able to slice and plate a nice stacked serving like a traditional lasagna is served. I pretty much made it. The plated shot is a bit disjointed because after I got my slice on the plate I scooped up a bunch more of the goodies from the pan and just kinda dumped it on the plate. Oh well..so much for presentation :emoji_laughing: This came out really well. A true Italian flavor bomb. The sauce added to that as did the homemade sausage but I think what really set it over the top was the combo of all the cheeses. We just love the flavors of the Parm and Romano and the ooey gooey texture of melted mozz. Tracy had a late lunch so said she wasn't hungry and no need to make a salad. That didn't stop her from getting a second serving though. It was that good!! A little bit leftover which made for her lunch today. All in all I was very happy with this one.

That's it....again. Take care everybody and we'll see y'all on the next installment of Twilight Zone Cooking.

Seriously man that is a great idea. Done plenty of CI dishes but never though to use the lasagna noodles. With the homemade sauce and sausage along with the cheeses I think you could even make the Godfather Raymond happy sawhorseray sawhorseray .

You are like the DJ Khaled of damn good cooks lately...

Fact is I'm darned impressed John, that's one creative and well thought out CI dish Robert, Like! I love the use of the egg noodles, always have some in the pantry and in all probability will be copying this cook soon, tho I'll have to do it in my oven. After selling my offset last month I'm left with the 22 and 26 inch Weber kettles, and my Pro 100 electric has a max temp of 250º. Not buying any more smokers either! RAY

There it is another masterpiece.

I think you could have gotten a little more cheese in there somewhere..... I love me some Mozza

Plan B looks like a AAA Robert.

Looks like a dish I would eat way too much of. Surprised that you had any leftovers.

That looks excellent!
Great work using what you have.
If you get a chance check out the pasta roller that goes on a KA mixer.
If you don’t have noodles you can make them right away, & once you have fresh made noodles you will never buy store bought again!
