Giada De Laurentis is quite possibly the most adorable woman on the planet. She is a wife, mother, business mogul, and domestic goddess all rolled into one adorable package.
I enjoy her cookbooks and go to them several times a week for delicious and easy recipes that my 3 kids will eat and that my husband Josh and I will also enjoy. They are child friendly and yet still sophisticated enough to make us big people happy!!
I made her lasagne last night , it is easy and delicious. I make mine identical to hers except I add parsley and garlic powder to my ricotta cheese mixture ( I have always done this) sometimes I skip the bechamel part and use just a marinara sauce, it just depends on time and preference the day I am cooking it. I also often substitute with ground turkey meat in place of the chopped meat.
Giada's recipe can be found in her wonderful cookbook "EVERYDAY ITALIAN"
