Besides a light salad, any recommendations for a side dish?

  1. I'm sure there are more (interesting) suggestions out there, but I've always equated lasagna with a good (homemade, if possible) garlic bread, warm from the oven. Mmm...

    Oh yeah, and the kids love it too!

    1. I would consider a side of dark greens, perhaps sauteed brussel sprouts with some shallots and a touch of lemon juice; spinach sauteed with garlic--I think the dark greens would offset the richness of the lasagna and provide a nice compliment.

      1. more lasgana, of course!!!!!

        ok - i like stuff like lightly sauteed zucchini on the side, but i think salad works best, for me

        1. To tell the truth, lasagna is so rich and filling on it's own, a tossed salad of various greens, shaved carrots, sliced celery....or any other vegetable you'd like would be perfect.. Make a simple olive oil and vinegar dressing. That's all that's needed. We don't serve bread when we have any kind of macaroni. Too many carbs in one meal!.

          1. On Monday we had lasagna with roasted asparagus--a few minutes under the broiler then tossed with viniagrette. My kids love it.
