It's a good Saturday morning
that I can watch a little
Food Network and
get a new recipe to try for dinner
It's an even better Saturday night
when I can call the fam and
have a crowd to help eat
The only problem
is I wind up with food pictures
that look like this.
Um, it was good.
It's a Giada recipe
She had me when I heard her say
cinnamon and allspice.
Lamb helped too.
I first tried those spices
in a savory recipe when I tried
You also find what we consider
sweet spices in savory dishes in
I like that too.
I was a little worried about the mint
in it since Mike only thinks mint is
appropriate in toothpaste
so I went a little light on it
and it was just fine.
The other point I'll note is that
this is not one of those
casseroles that are better the next day.
The noodles soak up all the
sauciness and it gets a bit dry.
I call this Patitsio-ish because the reviews
say it is not really legit.
I'm not either :).
