Ingredients Sauce: 3-4 tablespoons olive oil 1 onion, finally diced 2 cloves garlic, diced 7-10 Fresh Tomatoes, roughly chopped (if fresh are not in season, use 2 large cans of diced tomatoes.) 2 teaspoons dried oregano 2 teaspoons dried thyme 1 teaspoon dried rosemary 1 star anise seed ½ cup red wine ½ lb ground beef ½ lb ground pork 1 teaspoon fennel seed bunch of fresh herbs, chopped (parsley, basil, mint, oregano) For the Lasagna: 12 lasagna sheets (either use cook or non-cook) 1 15oz ricotta container (if you don’t like ricotta, use cottage cheese, strained), seasoned with salt and pepper. 1 lb mozzarella, grated 2 cups shredded Parmesan or pecorino Romano Directions For the sauce, heat oil in a large heavy Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, herbs and spices and cook, stirring, for 10 minutes, until the onions are wilted. Season liberally with salt and pepper. Raise heat slightly, crush the tomatoes into the pan. Add the wine and cook for an hour, stirring occasionally and tasting for seasoning. Add spices, salt and pepper as necessary. In a sauté pan, add 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil and then combine the beef, pork and fennel seed, cooking until browned all the way through. Season generously with salt and pepper. Transfer the meat mixture to the sauce after the sauce is cooked all the way through. Add in the bunch of fresh chopped herbs. Set aside. If using ricotta, mix the ricotta with salt, pepper, and mix with Italian herbs or minced garlic if you want an extra bold flavor. Heat the oven to 375. If necessary, cook the noodles, al dente. Straining out the meat for this first part, spoon a thick layer of sauce into the bottom of a greased 9-by-9-inch lasagna pan. Cover with a layer of noodles. Spoon more sauce (this time with the meat) on top, then add ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan. Repeat for 2 more layers, using all the meat and cheese. Top with a layer of noodles, and cover with the remaining sauce. Sprinkle reserved mozzarella and Parmesan evenly over the top. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until it is brown on top and bubbling. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. The post Lasagna appeared first on WORT 89.9 FM.

Tomato Tarte Provençal
Ingredients for Crust 1 cup all-purpose flour ½ teaspoon kosher salt 1 stick cold unsalted butter (1/4 pound), cut in 1/8-inch pieces 3 tablespoons ice water Ingredients for Tarte Filling 5-7 eggs, whisked 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard Sliced or shredded gruyere cheese (enough to cover the bottom of the tarte crust) 2-3 Tomatoes, sliced Herb de Provence Crust Preparation Put flour and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer or food processor. Add butter and quickly cut it into flour until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add ice water and mix briefly, about 30 seconds, to form a soft dough. Remove dough, shape into a thick disk, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Bring to cool room temperature before rolling. To roll, lightly flour dough and counter. Roll out gradually, periodically letting dough rest for a moment before continuing. This makes rolling easier and will keep dough from shrinking back during baking. Roll dough to a thin round approximately 13 inches in diameter, then lay dough in your tarte pan, letting it relax a bit. Fold the edges back inside to make a double thickness, then press firmly against the pan so the finished edge is slightly higher than the pan. Tarte Preparation Broil the slices of tomatoes on a greased cooking sheet, sprinkling each generously with herb de provence and salt. They should get soft and caramelize slightly on the edges. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Whisk the eggs and the salt together in a bowl and set aside. Once the crust is in the pan you can gently spread the Dijon mustard over the bottom and then lay or sprinkle the Gruyere cheese on top of that. Pour in the egg mixture into the crust and bake for approximately 30 minutes, or until it is browned on top and done in the middle. At about 15 minutes in, take the tart out and arrange the broiled slices of tomatoes into the tarte. Place the tarte back into the oven to cook for the remaining time.

Ingredients For the crust: 1/2 pound unsalted butter, at room temperature 1/2 cup granulated sugar 2 cups flour 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt For the filling: 6 extra-large eggs at room temperature 3 cups granulated sugar 2 tablespoons grated lemon zest (4 to 6 lemons) 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice 1 cup flour Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting Directions Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. You will start by making the crust, creaming the butter and granulated sugar together with an electric mixture until creamy. In a separate bowl combine the flour and salt and then add to the butter mixture until the consistency is lightly mixed. Dump the dough onto a well-floured board and gather into a ball. Flatten the dough with floured hands and press it into a 9 by 13 by 2-inch baking sheet, building up a 1/2-inch edge on all sides. Bake the crust for 15 to 20 minutes, until very lightly browned. Take out of the oven and let cool. Leave the oven on. To make the filling you will whisk together the eggs, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, and flour. Pour over the crust and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the filling is set. Let cool to room temperature. And then cut and dust with confectioners’ sugar.

Spring Green Pasta
Ingredients: 1 Package of Spinach Pasta (I like to use R&P Pasta) 2-3 tablespoons olive oil 1 clove garlic finely diced or grated. 1 can garbanzo beans 1-2 big bunches of fresh herbs (I like parsley and mint, but I’ve also used dill and/or basil, whatever you have that is fresh and laying around) 1/2-3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese Salt & pepper to taste Directions: Put a big pot of water on the stove to boil, generously salted. As the water is coming to temperature, you can chop up the garlic and all of the herbs. You’ll want them to be a fine consistency. Once the water is boiling, cook the pasta according to the directions on the package. When it is ready you can drain the pasta, then put it in a large boil. Add the olive oil, garlic, garbanzo beans, and herbs. Mix together. You are looking to cool the pasta down before you put the cheese in so that it sticks to the pasta rather than melts. Once it’s cooled down, add the cheese and salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm or cool. The post Spring Green Pasta appeared first on WORT 89.9 FM.

Italian Stuffed Peppers
Ingredients 4 Big Red Bell Peppers with tops cut off and insides cleaned 1 ½ cup barley 1 onion diced 3 cloves garlic diced 1 package mushrooms diced (Shitake, Baby Bella, or Portabella would work really well) ½ teaspoon dried rosemary 1 teaspoon dried thyme ½-1 can of tomato paste ½ cup Parmesan cheese Salt to taste Directions Preheat oven to 400. Cook the barley for 30-40 minutes in salted water until the barley is soft yet springy. Take the pot off of the heat and strain the barley, keeping the reserve water to add in to the mixture. While the barley is cooking you can cut up the vegetables and sauté them. Start with the onions and garlic, cooking in a sauté pan until browned. Add the diced mushrooms, continuing to cook until soft. Add the rosemary and thyme. Add the tomato paste and barley to the mixture, adding some of the reserve cooking water until the paste is distributed throughout. Cook for a few minutes longer until the mixture is moist but not wet. Fill the peppers with the mixture and place them in an oiled pan. If there is any left over mixture you can add that around the peppers. If you’ve saved the tops of the peppers, feel free to add them on top for a decorative touch.
