Chicken n Corn lasagne & 150th post

23:27 Niloufer Riyaz 14 Comments

How time flies, its like Ive just posted my 100th recipe, today my 150th post is something special, Its the first time I made this ,n I learnt it from my little sister, who is an expert in making this. Its none other than the cheesy cheesy Lasagne. Ive always wanted to make them but never tried coz my hubby is not a great Pasta lover. Then I had a chance to make them for a party that I hosted a week back for my best friend who loves lasagna.
Lasagne is a calorie rich dish with meat n lots of cheese n Butter, though it cannot be had daily it can be had very rarely( The last time I had lasagne was a year back), You can always reduce the amount of cheese used in Lasagne according to your taste. Since I used a rectangle dish I used 9 sheets, if you are using a square one you woould want only 8 sheets, arrange  the lasagne sheets in the baking dish before cooking them n see how much you would need.
My sister makes lasagne with an Indian touch by adding Garam masala instead of Oregano n Parsely. I made little adjustments according to my taste,like I didnt make the red sauce n the filling seperately I just made Tomato Puree n Cooked them with the filling n the  n Substituted corn for Spinach, Lasagne turned out really yummy n vanished within a few minutes. For those who wants to try the Vegetarian One just substitute the chicken with Veggies n Spinach. Sorry for not taking out detailed pictures, just managed to take this one only
