Somebody got a mandoline

At the moment this post is published I will be presenting my preliminary examination in the Chemical Engineering Department of CU-Boulder. Please wish me a lot of success.

So instead of practicing my presentation what am I doing? Cooking of course! In this case, zucchini lasagna.

Ever since someone (not me) cut her finger with a mandoline I’ve been tempted to get one, and honestly this recipe was just the excuse to get one. I did scout for a good stainless steel one on sale, but that’s beyond the point. What is the point is that I sliced zucchini super thinly!

I also browned meat with onions and peppers. Then I added tomato sauce AND tomato paste. Too much tomato, it seemed, until i saw how much can the meat absorb!

What I didn’t slice were the mushrooms. I got those pre-sliced. They are the same price!

I layered the meat and the zucchini and the shrooms one at a time. I got three full layers of meat, three full layers of zucchini but only two of mushrooms. Not because I ran out of shrooms, but because I ran out of space.
I baked for 15 minutes covered, and another 15 minutes not covered. It’s delicious.
Recipe from Make It Paleo. Yes, I’m still using recipes from the book, it is that awesome!

  1. Wait, me taking a chunk of my right ring finger is what finally made you want a mandoline? 🙂

    Keep bandaids on hand, especially if you like to cook while blasting music.

Say something!
