Q. Penny Asks: Hi Pam! I have attended every class you’ve taught at HEB-CMCS in San Antonio and own ALL of your books! Question: In CookSmart, in the recipe for Vegetable Lasagna, you don’t list any types of winter squash as veggie options. I get a lot of winter squash in my CSA box starting this time of year and was wondering if you had bad luck trying winter squash in the veggie lasagna or otherwise why you would not recommend it.
Also, in the headnote to the White Lasagne, you say, “I’ve kept the recipe simple by calling for a pound each of two different vegetables, but feel free to use a pound each of four vegetables …” Is that a typo? It seems like if I were to use four veggies, it would be 1/2 pound each, to total two pounds.
A. Great to hear from you, Penny! You’ve just reminded me that I need to be in touch with Central Market about teaching there next spring. I think winter squash is a great addition to the lasagna list. For extra flavor I would roast them. And you’re right. After nearly 10 years, you’ve found a typo. It should, in fact, be 1/2 pound each for a total of 2 pounds. Thanks for watching my back!
