Beyond Lasagna

Season 6, Episode 1 of 13

Everyone loves lasagna - it's easy to make and satisfying to eat - but there's more to baked pasta than this dish. John makes sausage and broccoli rabe in a rich tomato sauce with pasta shells and melted mozzarella. Today's "Have You Tried?" ingredient is fennel. Anna shows how this Mediterranean plant is served as both an herb and a vegetable. Easy to use, it tastes good raw and cooked and has a unique flavor that complements many dishes. Sarah captures the flavors of the Mediterranean by baking chicken and orzo pasta with feta cheese and lemon, served with a salad of fennel, parsley, parmesan and lemon. Lucinda layers thinly sliced potatoes and rigatoni pasta with tomatoes, oregano and cheese for tomato, pasta and potato bake. While that cooks, she prepares romaine hearts with goat cheese dressing.
