Mama Melanie’s Lasagna & My Good Cook Kitchen Drawer

My 15 kitchen drawer items were provided by Good Cook.  All opinions are 100% my own.

Mama Melanie's Lasagna

A few posts ago, I told you guys about Good Cook’s kitchen drawer event where you have a chance to win some great prizes.  As promised, I’m back to share the kitchen drawer I built with my new Good Cook tools.

Good Cook Kitchen Drawer

Tools in my drawer:

All together, these items make up a very useful kitchen drawer, and I used several of them when preparing my lasagna recipe.  Large Silicone Spatula

A couple of tablespoons of olive oil and some gentle stirring with my Large Silicone Spatula helped keep those lasagna noodles from sticking.

Nonstick Chefs Knife

Being the garlic fanatic that I am, I always add a little extra to my sauce, and the Nonstick Chef’s Knife made chopping a breeze.

Folding Grater

I prefer to grate my own cheese, but finding space to store my huge cheese grater has always been a problem.  I love how my new Folding Grater fits right in my kitchen drawer.

Small Silicone Spatula

I prefer this narrow Silicone Spatula for combining the ingredients that make up this lasagna’s delicious cheese filling.

Nylon Ladle

This Nylon Ladle makes spreading the marina sauce super easy–and it happens to hold exactly the right amount of sauce for each layer.

Spoon Spatula

I’ve always loved spoon spatulas, and I was so upset when I accidentally destroyed my last one.  I’m thrilled to add this Spoon Spatula from Good Cook to my kitchen drawer, and it was just what I needed to spread the cheese mixture on my lasagna layers.

Lasagna Server

With the Deluxe Lasagna Server, I can serve up a healthy portion of my favorite meal without the huge mess that I usually end up with!

And now I am going to share with you my favorite of all of my recipes.  This is a meal that I could eat every day and never get tired of.  It’s simple, but it’s so very yummy.  Enjoy!
