Is Lasagna fattening?

Lasagna does not have to be fattening if made with premium grade ground beef with little or no fat. The white sauce is made with butter and flour, however the butter can be replaced with a good quality vegetable oil such as rice bran oil. This will reduce the saturated fat content.

For the cheese topping, substitute with low fat shredded cheese.

depends on how much lasagna you'd eat.

It depends on the contents. If you prepare lasagne using low fat ingerdients then it isn't as fattaning as normal lasagne.

Frozen butter can be softened in the microwave. Place it on a microwave-safe dish and heat it for 10 seconds. Take it out and check the consistency. If it is still frozen, repeat microwaving it for 10-second intervals until it is defrosted. Just be careful not to heat it for too long, or it will melt.

Why would a 1990 Acura Integra not start in if left overnight?

First replace the inlet air temperature sensor. This will help the car on initial start up. Then if restart after warm up is still a problem, replace fuel pump main relay. Mind you, make sure fuel pump/presurre regulator are working. check the fan relay,sometimes they go bad and the fan is on all the time until the battery goes dead at least that is what happened to my 1991 integra 1. The battery may be on it's last leg. 2. If the battery is known to be good, the positive/negative contacts in the starter might be going bad. Try replacing starter ($60 for remanufactured one).

What is an Italian wine to serve with lasagna?

Many Italian wines are a very good choice for lasagna. You should serve a dry red wine. Anything in the Sangiovese (Chianti, Brunello, Rosso) or Nebbiolo (Barolo, Barbaresco) family of Italian wine is going to be a solid choice.

What is a good Italian wine to serve with an authentic Tiramisu?

As a general advice, every sweet wine is a good companion for sweet cakes, Italian wines or not. But, if you're are nevertheless searching Italian wines, I could suggest a couple of them:moscato spumante, marsala and malvasia are great Italian wines that match very well the Tiramisu.

What wine goes with lasagna?

A nice, dry Italian red.

Lasagna is a rich, full flavored dish. Anything less than full bodied will be lost. While many people recommend matching the white cheese with a white wine it seems to me that a red will stand up better to this complex mixture of spices, beef and red tomato sauce.

My feelings lead me to a Chianti, a less expensive Italian table wine, a Cabernet Sauvinon, a bit more complex or a rich Bordeaux. Try to stay with the less sweet variants in each wine as they will be more prone to lead to hangover as well as bloating and gastric discomfort.

When making lasagna do you put the sauce and cheese in the same layer or do you layer the ingredients independently?

Well if its lasagna you're meant to use lasagna sheets(you can use noodles if you want though that's void the point 8-)) and the general idea is to make the layers(starting from bottom up)

white sauce

lasagna sheet

bol. sauce

lasagna sheet

white sauce

lasagna sheet

bol. sauce

you keep following the pattern until you run out of space and then you top the top layer of white sauce with cheese, if you like.
