Ridiculously Practical Meals: Lasagna Grilled Cheese


'Quick and Simple' is my after work dinner mantra. I thrive off of meals that are delicious and under 20 minutes to make. In looking for inspiration there are some people that never fail to deliver and one of those people is Joy The Baker. For today's recipe I just went ahead and made it as is, with only one accidental alteration.


Yes, I accidentally altered the recipe. You see, I had originally intended to make this recipe last week, but some unexpected things came up. I had already bought all of the ingredients when I was originally planning on making this for dinner and when it was postponed I didn't even think of the basil going bad. Unfortunately when I pulled it out of the fridge it was dark green in color and no longer the type of freshness I require (it was also floppy and gross, bleck).


Despite the basil set back, the end result being that I simply skipped adding basil, the dinner was absolutely delicious and definitely well received. My husband doesn't even like grilled cheeses and he liked this one, although he did mention that the tomatoes made it. Just imagine how he'd of felt if I'd have had all the ingredients! This is such an easy recipe I think I may play around with it in the future. All you need is bread, unsalted butter, olive oil, part-skim ricotta cheese, basil, salt & pepper, cherry tomato (Joy uses canned tomatoes, but I used fresh ones and they turned out perfectly), and shredded mozzarella cheese.

  2. Fresh herbs go back so fast--I can understand the basil problem! I kind of forgot about grilled cheese for a long time but I've just recently started making some more elaborate adult version of grilled cheese sandwiches recently and they've been pretty good!

    1. Mmm, I love grilled cheeses of all kinds (except blue cheese, I really hate blue cheese). I plan on experimenting with different grilled cheeses a whole bunch too. If you have any favorites, please share!
