There is food that is perfect for a time like this: Lasagna al Forno.
It leaves you with a warm and fuzzy feeling, is totally easy to make and leftovers can be easily warmed up for the next two days. It is one of my favorite dishes.
- Sauce Bolognese
You chop one onion and glaze it in olive oil. You add 2 ponds of minced meat and fry it until it is well done. Add about one pound of sieved tomatoes, 3 oz. tomato paste, 2 oz. water, 2 tablespoons of Oregano, 1 tablespoon of salt and 3 tablespoons of white sugar. Heat it until it starts boiling then turn off the stove and let it cool a but.
- Sauce Bearnaise
Put 2 oz. of butter and melt it. Add 2 oz. flour and mix it well. Add one and a half pint of milk and stir well until it starts cooking. Then add about 3 oz. of grated Parmesan cheese. Stir until the Parmesan is dissolved and turn off the stove.
- Take a baking dish of sufficient size. Fill it with Bolognese sauce until it covers the ground layer. Then cover it with Lasagna plates. The next layer is Sauce Bearnaise and a bit of Sauce Bolognese. Then add Lasagna plates again. Make sure that you have enough Sauce Bolognese to cover the top layer of Lasagna plates. On the top put some grated cheese (e.g. Mozzarella) and a bit of grated Parmesan.
- Bake 30 minutes at 360° Fahrenheit.
