Cook the Book: Wild Mushroom and Spinach Lasagna
Every Thursday night back at my Williams College abode, everyone in my house clears their busy schedules to get together and cook a potluck feast. We hardly get to eat with everyone together during the week so we like to go all out and make an epic mess of the kitchen. Almost every week, someone always concocts a massive pasta dish and I can't wait to go back and try the wild mushroom and spinach lasagna recipe from The Martha Stewart Living Cookbook: The Original Classics . It's a dish big enough to stuff a ravenous crowd of college students like us and even meat-free for our resident vegetarian. It's also chock full of spinach to stave off that Scary Scurvy we all learned about in middle school (not just for pirates! but actually a real problem for college students who survive solely on beer and pizza!). As my housemates will tell you, I consume more spinach than Popeye could ever handle. Although I might lack the bulging biceps of our spinach-scarfing cartoon sailor, I always hope that these bouts of nutritious eating will happily counterbalance the pizza and french fry fests on the weekends. Surely this lasagna will help us out on that front and plus, it sounds mighty tasty.
