Need some comfort food? Try this mouthwatering lasagna with spicy Italian sausage, zucchini and carrots, and chewy chocolate chip cookies with walnuts
The ultimate feast: Italian sausage lasagna with chewy chocolate chip cookies
I love playing around with different lasagna recipes and this is one of my favourites to date. Lasagna is so comforting and delicious, especially with lots of veggies, and preparing it in the slow cooker makes it incredibly easy.
I worked at a summer camp in Waterton Lakes National Park during my first summer of university. I was called on to replace the chef’s assistant after she left, presumably because the chef was really mean but I didn’t find that out until after I’d accepted the job and set up my little home away from home – and darned if I didn’t stick it out for the rest of the summer!
Despite all of the meanness, I learned a thing or two in the kicthen. One great tip I learned is that lasagna noodles don’t need precooking so there’s no need to buy the no-boil noodles (which cost more) if you want to cut corners (which I always do).
I also love playing around with different chocolate chip cookie recipes and this one comes to you from my trusty Betty Crocker Cookbook that my dear friend Darrell gave to me as a wedding gift (and who I was fortunate enough to work with at beautiful Beauvais Lake Provincial Park the summer following my cranky camp experience).
The recipe calls for 2 1/4 cups of flour but the last time I made them I didn’t have enough so I used 1 cup oatmeal and 1 1/4 cups flour and they turned out great.
