- Lasagne 35 mins
- Garlic Bread 12-15
Both benefit from overcooking. Three Layer Vegetable
Lasagne really benefits with a slightly crispy top layer of pasta.
Garlic Bread always benefits from an extra five minutes either by
intentional over cooking, or forgetting to get out of the bath.
Always remember to remove the cardboard from Lasagne
before cooking (see Fig 1).
Likewise, always unwrap the Ciabatta Bread too (see
You can do almost anything whilst this is cooking. The
35 minute preparation time is more than enough to have a bath, surf the
internet, learn a cool rocking tune on the guitar.
If selecting the guitar option, Bemuddlement
recommends something strummy and chordy such as Sheryl Crow's "It
Don't Hurt" or John Lennon's "Jealous Guy". Avoid
complicated classics such as Kim Mitchell's "Go for Soda" or
the intro to Rush's 1980 masterpiece "Spirit of Radio". Only the finest
culinary/guitar geniuses should attempt any Van Halen song. Why
not try something unusual for the guitar such as Abba's "SOS"
or Tubeway Army's "Are Friends Electric"?
