What do you get when you combine 25% of the ground beef called for by the recipe, ricotta cheese that needs using, and a missing casserole dish?
Fakey lasagna, that’s what. The sauce is fakey because I supplemented the ground beef with a bag of mixed roasted veggies (eggplant, zucchini, and peppers) from the freezer. The noodles are fakey because I had to break them up to fit in the three small ceramic bread pans (plus a small foil pan from when I thought I was going to be a good person and bring food over to my new-parent friends).
The cheese was not fakey, which is why the lasagna still tastes like lasagna and will feed me lunch for the rest of the week.
