If you're back in school, back to work, back in stressland of any sort, you might be craving some sort of soul-fortifying food hug right about now. One of my personal favorite food hugs is a big ol' pan of lasagna--and not a thin, dainty one, either. It's got to be tall and stacked through with vegetables, meats, and a ton of cheese. Lasagna is such a childhood classic for many of us who grew up with moms who liked to cook both ground beef and casseroles, yet it's still adaptable to current tastes, or to current needs to clean out the pantry. It's also just a beautiful, big pan of goodness, a culinary specimen of theology and geometry. If you like to build things that taste good and heal your soul, you'll like this.
