adventures in cooking

Since I'm talking about food tonight, I figured it's a good time to share the lasagna lesson I learned this weekend:

If you run out of lasagna noodles, it is possible to use spaghetti for the pasta layer. If you do this, however, use less spaghetti than you think you need. It expands a lot. (My mom will recognize this as an infrequent recurring theme in my cooking adventures.) I don't particularly like spaghetti; it's my least favorite pasta shape, but for this, it worked very well.
