Whats On Emilio Sparks Thanksgiving Plate pt 1

Antipasto, Artichokes and homemade Italian wedding soup

what Emilio Sparks made for Dinner last night…

So yeah its cool to cook. I mean if you don’t cook you might starve. I had to learn to cook because I couldn’t rely on my ex’s to do so. I couldn’t get one ex to mash me sweet potatoes.

But girls love it when us guys cook for them. Any way I got asked next time I make something kick ass to share it on the site.

Coat your pan with olive oil sauté zucchini, peppers (green & red) onion, 2 cloves of garlic add salt & pepper.

Add tomato paste & a small 8 oz can can of italian tomato sauce. cook until contents in the pan are soft.

While your cooking that shit boil your lasagna noodles (8 to 10 minutes). Drain noodles, and rinse with cold water. I used whole wheat noodles.

At this point you should know how to make a lasagna, all you do is layer noodles add ricotta cheese & the contents (repeat layers). If you have left over Sunday sauce you can add meatballs or sausage. Cover in foil.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil, and throw some shredded mozzarella on top & let this sum bitch cool for 20 minutes before serving.

It should look like this…

Remember good food takes time to make so be patient.
