I'm new to this website community, but I love it so far. Hope this post isn't too annoying....

Thanks Guys, hope to hear from you.

    I haven't tried this recipe, but it sounded pretty good. It doesn't have as many veggies as some recipes, though.

    Blonde Lasagna

    Instead of tomato sauce, this lasagna uses a ricotta custard heavily laced with garlic and red pepper. You can adjust the amount of seasoning to your own taste, but I have found that the lasagna is less bland if you use at least 4 cloves of garlic in the custard.

    Blonde Lasagna

    10 ounce box lasagna noodles, cooked drained and set aside
    4 oz. fresh spinach leaves, washed and patted dry, stems cut off
    4 oz. fresh mushrooms, sliced
    1 medium onion, sliced
    2 Tbsp. olive oil
    1 pound mozzarella cheese, grated or thinly sliced
    for the custard:
    1 pound ricotta cheese (don=92t use the nonfat kind)
    1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
    6 eggs
    1/2 cup milk (or more)
    1/4 cup minced parsley
    8 cloves garlic, or to taste
    1 tsp. dried red pepper flakes, or to taste
    1 Tbsp. salt
    1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

    Boil the lasagna noodles and set aside in lukewarm water so they do not stick together. In olive oil, saute onion and mushrooms until soft. In a greased lasagna dish, lay out three lasagna noodles and top with a layer of fresh spinach leaves. Top spinach with 1/2 the onions and mushrooms. Top with 1/3 of the grated mozzarella cheese. Repeat all the layers. Top the casserole with another three lasagna noodles and the remainder of the mozzarella cheese. In a blender or food processor, blend the ricotta, Parmesan, eggs, milk, parsley, garlic, pepper and salt until thoroughly mixed and smooth (You may need to do this in several batches.) The custard should be the consistency of thick cream. If it is too thick, add milk a few
    tablespoons at a time and blend until it is the right consistency. The custard must be poured over the casserole in such a way that it penetrates all the layers, down to the bottom layer. The best way to do this is by using a spatula or large barbecue fork. As you are pouring the custard, lift the layers on the sides and in between the noodles with the spatula or fork to make sure it penetrates evenly into every nook and cranny. Sprinkle another 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese on top of the custard. Bake the lasagna in a 350 degree (no hotter!) Oven for 35-45 minutes, or until it is puffed and just beginning to brown on the top. Let it rest for 5 minutes before cutting and serving.

    I don't know for sure the calorie info on any of these, but here are some in my collection all the same.

    Sweet Summer Pie

    Recipe By: The All-New Blue Ribbon Cookbook -- featuring prize winning recipes from America's state fairs

    1 Basic Rich Pie Crust
    1/3 Cup All Purpose Flour
    2/3 Cup Sugar
    5 Cups Peeled, Thinly Sliced Nectarines
    1 Cup Sliced Strawberries
    4 Egg Yolks
    1/8 Teaspoon Salt
    1/3 Cup Sugar
    1/3 Cup Fresh Orange Juice
    3 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice
    2 Teaspoons Grated Orange Peel
    1 1/2 Teaspoons Grated Lemon Peel
    4 Egg Whites
    1/2 Cup Sugar

    Preheat oven to 425. Prepare dough for crust and roll out dough to a 13 inch circle. Ease into a 9 inch pie pan, making a high fluted edge. In a medium bowl, mix flour and 2/3 cup sugar. Add nectarines and strawberries and toss gently to coat fruit. Spoon evenly into pie shell. Cover rim of dough with a strip of foil. Bake 30 minutes and remove foil. Bake 10-15 minutes or until fruit is tender and juices are just beginning to bubble up. Meanwhile, in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, beat egg yolks, salt and 1/3 cup sugar with a hand-held electric mixer about 3 minutes or until egg yolks are thick and light lemon-colored. Add orange and lemon juices and mix until smooth. Cook over simmering water, stirring constantly, until mixture begins to thicken. Cook 8-10 minutes, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick, Remove from heat; add orange and lemon peels and refrigerate, stirring once or twice. When fruit is baked, remove pie from the oven and reduce the heat to 350. In a medium bowl, beat the egg whites with a mixer at medium speed until foamy. Gradually beat in sugar, then beat at high speed until stiff peaks form but egg whites are still glossy. Fold into cooled egg yolk mixture. Spread over the hot fruit filling, making sure meringue touches the edge of the crust to seal the filling. Bake 15 minutes or until the topping is puffy and golden brown. Cool pie on a wire rack. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature. Refrigerate leftovers. Makes 1 9 inch pie, 8 servings.

    Tara S,

    Good luck with your dinner party! You might also want to look at to see if there is anything else you want to try. I know there are more summery-type lighter desserts, but I'm not on my pc that has the bulk of my recipes. smile.gif
