Every day, we’re showered with recipe requests by A+J Fans. Unsurprisingly, Lasagna often tops the charts! 😀

You’ve spoken, and we’ve listened!

Garfield and I share one thing in common: Lasagna is our love language.

His obsession for Lasagna might have been the original source, the first seed that was planted in my 5-year old foodie heart. 😛

Who knew it’d blossom into this lifelong love affair with this heavenly Middle Ages Italian culinary creation?

Garfield Lasagna

Whenever we eat out, we try our best to order a dish we’ve never tasted before. But every time we visit an Italian restaurant, I simply couldn’t resist the temptation to taste their expression of this glorious culinary work of art.

The rich multitude layers of sweet-savory-tart-umami flavors and chewy-creamy-gooey-cheesy-toothsome bites.

Each inviting slice of heaven is so indescribably comforting & satisfying.

It’s time to make Mouthwatering Lasagna in Instant Pot!! 😀

This was my first attempt at making lasagna like this and I had to improvise a bit;ie, no springform pan, no ready bake lasagna noodles and, thanks to covid-19, I had to use a beef/ pork mix.
