True story. (Refer headline to this post). Vegetarian Lasagna has been on my to-cook list for so long. I finally got down to making this last year. To my surprise, I nailed the recipe in the first time. I tried it again last week and decided to share the recipe with all of you!

A cross between Pasta and a Casserole dish, Lasagna combines best of both worlds. It is time consuming and requires good planning for all the different layers. But if you plan well, it is a breeze to put together! You don’t need to be intimidated by this recipe at all!    (more…)

Pasta with Roasted Tomato Sauce

Roasted tomato sauce recipe has changed my life forever.

Seriously, no drama.

Some recipes are borrowed, some passed down and some – like the recipe for these no-knead garlic rolls – are invented by my over imaginative brain.

There is a lot of thinking about food going on in my head all the time. I’ve been branded an obsessive foodie by many. And why should I be embarrassed about it? Yes – I may not seem normal to my next door neighbor; who cannot fathom why my eyes pop out when I smell beautiful onions caramelizing or when I see mint leaves growing right outside in the garden like there’s no tomorrow! The truth is – my brain goes into a recipe overdrive every time I see or get my hands on fresh ingredients.

One day, I got myself some fresh, subtly pungent garlic cloves and plucked green chilies from my chili pot… and got to thinking about all the classic possibilities I could make with 2 most commonly used ingredients. I had made numerous variations of the garlic bread before. The one thing all of them involved was – KNEADING. While there isn’t anything wrong with getting some elbow grease, wouldn’t we all like to do away with the kneading a few times? After a few different attempts, I finally made some super soft rolls with a dough that barely involved any kneading!
