Love Thursday: Love in the Lasagne Verde

You know we love Calabrian Stuffed Lasagne around here, but this week we have some extra love for an extra special lasagne, Lasagne Verde.

Emily of My Muffin Thursdays sent along this gorgeous heart of spinach pasta dough, which she made as part of The Daring Bakers’ Challenge:

Have you ever made or eaten Lasagne Verde?

Happy Love Thursday everyone!

P.S. For those wondering what has happened to Cherrye’s My Bella Vita, there are some technical details that she’s working furiously on–don’t worry, she’ll be back as soon as possible!

    My grandmother makes the best spinach lasagna, but she hides how much she makes from us because if we know there’s more no one will eat the secondo!

    Its looks like I may have to go gluten-free! Sob, no pasta! What the hell sort of life is that going to be?

    Oh Willym, I’m sure once the shock wears off you’ll find lots of great gluten-free stuff to eat…right? 😉

    When I first moved to Italy I used to make a vegetable lasagna…stuffed with slices of zucchina and mushrooms, it was really delicious, but my husband and his family were truly horrified by my “weird experiment” and so I quickly learned the “right” way to make lasagna…their way, that is! Which is also delicious, of course, but…

    Yeah, a veggie lasagne wouldn’t fly here either but *I* sure love it 🙂

    Oh man, I love spinach pasta. I think my favorite is spinach gnocchi. Gnocchi was invented by the gods, I truly believe that.

    Devil girl! I haven’t had so much as a single spaghetto in months. As soon as they invent a 100% carb free flour I am there.

    I’m just the messenger here! I didn’t make that gorgeous lasagne…wish I did though….
