After much deliberation I decided to submit :

“Lasagna Love”

1 pack precooked lasagna noodles
2 jars spaghetti sauce
17 oz Ricotta cheese
1 t. sweet basil
1 t. oregano
1 egg
1 lb. ground, browned Italian sausage
3 cups Mozzarella cheese
1 cup Parmesian cheese

Pre-heat oven ( with some innocent play)
Ricotta (to add some excitement)
Basil and oregano (to spice it up)
Blend in egg (to add some stamina)

Use ungreased, 8X10 baking pan (to hold all the comfort)
1. 1. cup sauce (to swap a sweetened kiss)
2. Evenly spread 1/4 cooked sausage (to add spontaneity)
3. Place pasta in row (to tier with expectation)
4. Spread 1/4 Ricotta mixture (to intertwine emotions)
5. Sprinkle 1/4 Mozzarella (to stretch the imagination)
6. Repeat steps 1-5 (until pan is full of passion)

Bake 1 hour (to heat up the love)
Cool 45 minutes (to lie in each others arms)

I hope I made the right choice sending this poem. It’s different and hopefully it stands out to the judges. 🙂
