Feed the Masses

Feed the Masses

March 20, 2006

There’s always plenty of kids around, whether they’re teens or two. This menu will easily let you feed them all and their parents too! It can be made ahead or at dinnertime and will be enjoyed by friends of every age. Break out the paper plates or your finest china (for the grown-ups) and serve up the masses.

Wesley’s Green Salad:

Per serving:

1 cup washed greens, torn into bite size pieces

2 slices bacon, fried and crumbled

1 tabs freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Toss with Dr. Pete’s Parmesan Pepper Spritzer

Chopped hard-boiled egg can be added, but Wesley hates eggs

Lasagna Bolognese:

1 pound mozzarella cheese, grated

1/2 pound ricotta

1 pound lasagna noodles

1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Meat Sauce:

2 Tabs butter

1 cup chopped onion

2 cloves minced garlic

1/2 cup chopped celery

2 tabs olive oil

1 lb. Sweet Italian sausage

1 lb. Ground beef

1/2 cup dry white wine

2 cups peeled, seeded, and chopped fresh tomatoes

4 tabs tomato paste

2 cups beef broth

1 bay leaf

1/2 teas sugar

1/2 teas oregano

1/8 teas allspice

1/2 teas basil

Salt and pepper to taste

Italian Béchamel sauce:

3 tabs butter

6 tabs flour

2 cups milk

1 cup heavy cream

1 teas salt

1/8 teas fresh nutmeg (or use bottled to be easy)

For the meat sauce: In a heavy skillet, melt the butter and sauté the onion, garlic, and celery over low heat until golden. Transfer to a heavy 3-4 quart saucepan. To the same skillet add olive oil and sauté sausage and beef until lightly browned, breaking up any lumps. Drain excess fat. Add wine to meat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly until wine is almost evaporated. Add meat to the saucepan containing onion mixture, and then add tomatoes, tomato paste, beef stock, and all spices. Simmer partially covered for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove and discard bay leaf.

For the béchamel sauce: In a heavy 2-3 quart saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Whisk in flour and cook slowly for 2 to 3 minutes; do not let the flour brown, this will cause the sauce to be brown. Stir constantly. Gradually add the milk and cream, stirring with a whisk to prevent lumping. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens. Remove from heat and add salt and nutmeg.

Mix 3/4 of the mozzarella cheese with the ricotta cheese and set aside. Grease a 9x13 baking dish. Cook lasagna noodles according to the package directions. Drain on towels. To assemble, spread 1/4 inch of meat sauce evenly in prepared dish. Layer with 1/3 of the noodles, then 1/3 of the béchamel sauce and 1/3 of the cheese mixture. Repeat twice. Top with reserved mozzarella and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake in a 350-degree oven until bubbly, about 30 minutes.

Lemon Squares:

1 cup melted butter

2 cups all purpose flour, plus 4 tabs flour

1 scant cup confectioners sugar

4 eggs

2 cups sugar

1 teas baking powder

6 tabs fresh lemon juice

Combine butter, 2 cups flour and 1 cup confectioners’ sugar with wooden spoon. Pat with floured hands into buttered 13x9 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. While crust is cooling, beat together eggs, sugar, baking powder, remaining flour, and lemon juice. Pour over baked crust and bake at 350 degrees for an additional 30 to 35 minutes, until filling appears set. Sometimes it takes 40 minutes. Crust will be brown but then sprinkle confectioners’ sugar over them and cut into squares when cool.
