BACON WEAVED LASAGNA.

BACON WEAVED LASAGNA
by: deliciously Dee

So the other day I had lunch at a lil spot and ordered a simple BLT.  I don't know why I do because majority of the time I get my BLT... they give me two strips of bacon.  So, not every bite gets bacon.  And who just wants a lettuce and tomato sandwich??  When I make my BLT's, I weave my bacon by taking 3 bacon strips, running them over cold water (they don't shrink when you do this), cut the 3 strips in half, and begin to weave like a basket.  I set in a pan on wax paper and bake 15-20 min at 350 degrees F.  This makes a perfect square for your bread slices guaranteeing bacon in EVERY bite! 

While at the grocery I was picking up ingredients to do my Medicated Chef Dee Remix of my favorite Lasagna at Capo's Italian Restaurant off W Sahara in Las Vegas.  I was just walking around grabbing what I needed from my list and still thinking about that BLT.  Then I started thinking about bacon weaving and then the Lasagna.  Then Boom!!! HiDea hit me! 

Bacon Weaved Topped Lasagna
by: deliciously Dee

(6 servings)

Prep: 30 min     
Cook: 40 min     
Happy: 1.1 hour 

Ingredients:

9 uncooked lasagna noodles
2 cups diced tomatoes
1 1/2 cups baby spinach
1 (15 oz) container of ricotta cheese
2 1/2 cups (10 oz) mixed shredded cheeses (parmesan & mozzarella) 
2 cups baby bella mushrooms (diced)
1 cup white onion (diced)
1 cup green scallions (diced) 
1 egg
1 package of bacon (your choice) 
1/4 cup cannabis infuse olive oil
3 cloves garlic (minced)
Pepper to taste

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

First, take a large pot and boil water and a lil kosher salt, add your lasagna noodles.

Take the pack of bacon. Remove each strip and run cold water over each one.  Cut strips in half and begin weaving until you make nice little squares using 6 halves (3 strips of bacon).  Place your bacon weaves on a wax cooking sheet on a oven safe cooking pan.  Bake for 15-20 minutes (don't let get to crispy or burnt as you will be baking them another 5 minutes later) 
In a large mixing bowl, add your egg, ricotta cheese, 1 1/2 cups of your mixed shredded cheese (parmesan & mozzarella), 3/4 white onions, 3/4 scallions, garlic, and 1/4 cup cannabis infused olive oil.  Mix all ingredients well. Set aside.

In another large mixing bowl, add your diced tomatoes, 1 1/2 cups finely chopped fresh baby spinach,   the left over cup of shredded cheeses (parmesan & mozzarella), 2 cups diced mushrooms, 1/4 white onions (diced) , and 1/4 scallions (diced). Set aside.

Grease a 7x11 baking dish.  Lay 3 cooked lasagna noodles (long ways) in dish so that bottom of pan is covered with a layer of noodles.  Next, add the first mixture you did (ricotta mix) as your first filling layer.  Spread evenly over your layer of noodles.  Then take another 3 cooked lasagna noodles and make your next layer covering the ricotta mixture.  After layer of noodles, add your second mixture (tomatoes & mushrooms mix) and spread evenly over your second layer of lasagna noodles. Lastly, for this first bake, add another layer of 3 lasagna noodles covering your last spread (tomatoes & mushrooms spread).  Bake for 15 minutes in oven at 350 degrees. 

Remove lasagna from oven.  Place your bacon weaves on top of lasagna (they should cover it perfectly with one pack of bacon).  Sprinkle with a few scallions on top.  Bake another 5 minutes.
