Veggie Lasagna

Lots of lovely veggies! This is one of my favorites even though lasagna is kind of one of those foods that can be really bad for you, a big stack of cheese, pasta and meat, usually pork sausage, can't be good. I like to make this version with no meat, half the usual amount of cheese and tons of veggies. Assembled and half-baked the day before give the flavors a chance to 'kick' and my food planning ....urge, habit, fetish, hobby.... yeah that's it, my hobby is satisfied. So after about 20 years I think I'm getting pretty good at this cooking thing.

Chicken pie

Chicken and veggie pie I made a couple of weeks ago. I had forgotten that I took a picture of it. I do that all the time, I either get so caught up in the cooking and the serving that I completely forget to grab my camera and snap a few or I take a ton of the same thing and never use them. I get distracted......damn you real life.
Anyway I like to use a springform pan when I make any kind of pie. You can make them nice and thick and if you let them cool enough slicing and serving is as easy as .....mmmmpie.
