Les Petits Chefs cook Stefano Faita’s Spinach and Ricotta Lazy Lasagna

Stefano Faita's Spinach and Ricotta Lazy Lasagna on eatlivetravelwrite.comPasta is always a hit with Les Petits Chefs and this week was no exception. A couple of weeks ago, I received a press release about the launch of Stefano Faita’s new book (he of CBC’s In the Kitchen with Stefano Faita show fame) – In the Kitchen with Stefano Faita – and when I was checking out his recipes and videos, I came across this “lazy lasagna” made with spinach and ricotta that uses cooked, leftover pasta instead of lasagna sheets. I liked the idea of showing the boys what you can do with some leftovers and a few simple ingredients so on Monday we got to chopping and frying up the garlic…

Whilst the boys’ finished dishes didn’t look quite like Stafano’s “lasagna”, they certainly looked pretty tasty and I heard great reviews from both boys and parents!

    Hey boys – I hope this is what’s in my lunch today! :-)

    Like Les Petits Chefs, pasta is always a popular choice at my house. I would try Easy Ricotta and Pesto Stuffed Shells. Why? Pasta. It looks easy, yet elegant.

    Thanks.
