I don't know why but I absolutely LOVE winter.
The cold crisp air and leaves changing and later snow makes me feel so alive.
And it's a great time for baking hearty meals without worrying about over heating the house.
If you like both spaggetti and lasagna this recipe will be sure to please.
Made it for my family of 6 and it was a huge hit.
This recipe fed our 6 for dinner with leftovers for lunch the next day.
For those with smaller families make the full batch and freeze half for another night.
Hoping the other sisters will post some hearty winter meals recipes  purplehijabisis

wsalam,

I just read that our average first day of snow is Oct 31 and our average last day of snow is Apr 20. I'm going to cry now   :'( It's going to be a loong looong winter fainting

But at least we do have the foods!!

I usually do your recipe blessedgrandma but without the end stuff, that does sound yum! And cottage cheese will work or do you mean ricotta cheese?? Going through all that you might as well make Lasagna non? Question the eggs are to bind everything together?

Jannah, the reciepe is copied from the site link and it calls for cottage cheese.
(Over the years I have heard cottage cheese as being refered to the poor mans ricotta and it is half the price as ricotta)
I imagine either could be used, I made it as per the reciepe and everyone loved it. I'd like to try it with ricotta sometime.
It doesn't mention what kind of cottage cheese to use and I used 4% a lower fat one.

As to time on it and just going a head and making lasagna? I find it less time consuming making
the baked Spagetti. Making lasagna one has to worry about the noodles not sticking and laying them out
rather than just plopping the cooked spagetti in the pan  Smiley not having to lay each think lasagna noodle out.

I'm assuming the egg/butter/parm cheese is for both flavor and binding the spagetti.

Assalamu Alaiykum,

This is not quite a recipe but just a visual. Ok here's the quickest recipe  Grin
  • Get a good chocolate cake (or you could bake one)
  • Cut a slice
  • Pour some custard out of a can or carton (again you could make it yourself), on top of cake
  • Serve warm. Voila!
It's very hearty & great for Winter! yum yum... Smiley A British school dinner classic. This is the fondest memory I have school dinners.

Ma'Salam,

Sr J, can you resize plz?

And soon will your Lord give you so that you shall be well pleased.
