Oh Meat, how I miss you

I cooked up this here turkey sausage lasagna for Alex. She has some friends staying with her for a few days and I thought she would like something to feed all these guests of hers. I can't tell you how tempted I was to cut into this baby and keep a slice for myself. I miss eating meat at home. It felt weird to cook meat here. The only other time I've cooked meat in this apartment was one night about a month ago. I had an uncontrollable hankering for steak, so I went to Whole Foods and bought one. I do miss eating meat (I will eat it out, but that means no meat for a month for me...), but I do save a lot of money and it is nice to get the bulk of my groceries from local vendors at the weekly Farmer's Market.

I couldn't resist adding some veggies in here though, so I sauteed some carrots and spinach and folded them in to the ricotta mixture. I think this is a pretty well balanced meal. I made this recipe up as I went along, so hopefully it tastes as good as it looks.

That looks really good! I bet it would be equally delicious without the turkey sausage and just the veggies, too.

Thanks! If I made it for myself with just veggies, I think I would add more veggies to "beef" it up a little. Haha. Oh man. Anyway, I'd probably add zucchini perhaps portobella mushrooms.
