tuscansunriseI know, a rather odd picture to post on vegetarian lasagna.The thing is, this recipe from Saveur magazine, feeds 6-8, and I don't have any company coming over. Long story short, I'm not making it just for myself, since I know I'd probably end up eating all myself. It's just that good :)

You're in for a treat.  This dish will be the main course for the first night of my upcoming retreat. I've made it twice now, and I will say that I think it tastes much better the second day.  Delicious either way, and I'm sure, if you try it, you'll be making it time and time again.

cabbageHonesty is important in blogging, don't you think? So, I want to admit that when I first saw this recipe in a magazine, I wasn't too excited to try it.I was on a layover at the Phoenix airport, and browsing a magazine rack, I picked up the latest edition of Phoenix Home and Garden. With plenty of time to burn, I flipped through the pages and found an article entitledCabbage Is King.

Absolutely nothing." Certainly an important thing to remember if you're dealing with this disease. Now, on to the gumbo recipe, which was given to us by Bobby Deen,...
