Home made lasagna

After the baking "experiments" in the recent weeks, the Clairvoyant decided to try making lasagna for lunch. This was actually the second time but the first one without guidance or help from our friend who taught her to make apple pie. This time she decided to make lasagna for lunch after ruling out spaghetti and baked macaroni. The latter was her "specialty" and she did make good baked mac for Christmas or New Year's eve dinners. That she did at her parents' home where they have an oven. She hadn't made baked mac for quite some time now so I thought she cook up some for our guests last weekend.

Unfortunately, I was not able to take photos of the process and the final product after it came out of the oven. I only have two photos to show what's left of the lasagna after we had enjoyed a bit of it. It was a hit so I guess the photos would at least give an idea of what we "feasted" on over lunch last weekend with our cousin and her family who were visiting from Hong Kong.

What's left of the lasagna after we had a few servings...

A close-up of the scrumptious layers of sauce and pasta doesn't really give justice to the taste; but the wife got the best ingredients for the sauce and the cheese so I already knew it would be good even before the lasagna was finished.
I wasn't able to get the lasagna noodles that had ridges. We only had the flat ones available from the nearby supermarket so it was a bit tricky to make the layers for the pasta dish. Nevertheless, this didn't affect the final product as it still tasted great (though I may certainly be biased in this case). I am looking forward to the baked macaroni the next time we're using the oven for some pasta.
