Hello everyone and welcome back to another new episode of Nikoli's Kitchen! This week on the show I talk about some Shakespeare because of course I do. After sharing what's been going on in my kitchen and talking about the episode gap- the AMA and more are still in the pipe, I promise, life is just crazy!- I get into a breakdown of one of my all-time favorite foods to make and eat... cheese lasagna. No, I don't make my lasagna with meat, and I'll explain why in the episode. Thank you all so much for listening, for your amazing support, and most of all your patience as I deal with the insanity of my schedule right now and try to get out regular content. 


Featured Recipe for this Episode

Homemade Pasta 
5 c Homemade Marinara Sauce
2 c Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 c fresh-shredded parmesan cheese
Prepared cheese mixture (see below)

~| Recipes for marinara sauce and homemade pasta can be found at https://nikoliskitchen.podbean.com/e/episode-014/ |~

32 oz. whole milk ricotta cheese
1/2 c fresh-shredded parmesan cheese
4 c shredded mozzarella cheese
2 T cornstarch
2 T fresh oregano, chopped
2 T fresh basil, chopped
Salt, pepper to taste
2 eggs

Combine cheeses, cornstarch, eggs, seasonings, and spices into a large bowl and whip together with an electric mixer. Place back in the refrigerator until ready to use (Make sure you don't add the cheeses included in the main ingredients list, only those for the cheese mixture).

Preheat oven to 350°.
Add 1 c of sauce to the bottom of a 9x13" baking dish, spreading evenly.
Take your prepared and rested pasta dough and unwrap it. Lightly flour your countertop.
Cut the dough into quarters, re-wrapping the remainder until you are ready to prepare it.
Roll the quarter of dough out to a rectangle roughly the size of your 9x13" dish and place it into the baking dish.
Add 1/3 of your cheese mixture over your pasta and spread into a layer.
Add 1 c of sauce over the cheese and spread out.
Repeat this process two more times with pasta sheet, cheese, and sauce. 
Add your final pasta sheet over the top and top with final 1 c of marinara sauce. 
Top this with your shredded mozzarella and parmesan cheeses.
Cover with foil and place in the oven for 50 minutes. 
Remove the foil and bake for 10 more minutes.
Turn the broiler on high and broil just until the cheese on top is browned.
Remove from the oven and rest for 15 minutes.
