I met this lady in New Frontiers (story in my journal) and well, I'm making dinner for her sunday night. We decided on lasagna. Any really good recipes you guys recommend? No dehydrator. And, she doesn't "do mushrooms." Thanks! I have two recipes, but I haven't tried them yet, and I really want something super good to make her all happy and warm on the inside. We're going to have it with salad too. So any good pairings, I'd appreaciats as well.
Thanks soooo much!
Oh, prep time should be fairly quick too. I'll be there around 5pm and we should eat no more then a lil over an hour later. Hopefully. If we talk a lot, it'll be longer. If you recommend extended time, please tell me why.

My meat and potatoes son-in-law absolutely, hands-down LOVED Alissa's Angel Hair Pasta and Marinara. Very easy prep.
Also, RP's brownies would be a nice treat.
Snownoir, lasagna is one of those foods that will take some prep time (I believe it needs to sit for a bit before serving and there are a bunch of little steps) so not sure if it's a good choice unless you make it ahead of time and bring it with you then the two of you could make a dessert together that is quick, like "date torte" yum... or "RP brownies". (Date torte is in Alissa's book and is very good & easy to make)
I would LOVE to try Carmella's lasagna though... here's the link:

When you slice the zuchinni noodles, try using a wide veggie peeler, that way you get them really thin just like lasagna noodles.

Well, I don't have Alissa's book, so I can't try her's.
I don't think there is much prep time for this though. All the fillings take but 5 min in the food processor (at least for teh recipes I've seen so far). Right?
Or am I fooling myself? :D
Sharon, thanks for the tip on slicing the Zuchs.
I might just try one tomorrow and see what happens.

Sarma's recipe for lasagna from Raw Food Real world is the BOMB! My meat-n-potatoes husband requests it at least once if not twice a week. No mushrooms. The only prep is soaking the sun dried tomatoes and pine nuts. It is an involved recipe but I don't think any more difficult than putting together a SAD lasagna.
It is really the best I have ever had! The kind of food you bit into and go "mmmmm" just because you can't help yourself!! ;)
