Traditional Lasagna & Bruschetta

I’ve been in the mood for Italian lately and so for the last two recipes of this week I chose lasagna and bruschetta, my two favorite Italian dishes.  Both turned out absolutely fabulous and are pretty simple and straightforward to make, the bruschetta in particular because it’s something I was able to whip up in about 15 minutes.

You can find the lasagna recipe online here or in the Taste of Home Most Requested Recipes issue.  I don’t have any notes for this one because I didn’t change much, other than using a bit more cheese than the recipe called for.

The bruschetta recipe I found online here.  The only thing I changed about this recipe is to leave the bread in the oven for 10 minutes instead of 5, because I like extra crispy bread.  I would also like to point out that the Colavita balsamic vinegar I used was particularly delightful — super thick and tasty.  I think the best part about this recipe is the ease and speed with which it can be created, so if you have the ingredients on hand it makes a nice dinner or appetizer if you’re having someone over last minute or if you just happen to be in the mood for it.

    • It was really good. The bruschetta is my favorite though — all I had to do was pick up some tomatoes after work yesterday to make some more. Super quick and delicious. Although different kinds of tomatoes effect the taste — my favorite so far have been Campari.
