Green Garden Lasagne

Green Garden Lasagne

Green Garden Lasagne – Garden vegetables tossed with mozzarella cheese, bechamel and portobello mushroom duxelle, layered with herb ricotta and spinach pasta, baked till bubbling and served with shaved fennel and almond salad. A vegetable based lasagne is hard to come by, let alone a good one. We were glad to spot it here at PS. Cafe. The baked lasagne was served on a plate instead of the typical clay porcelain ware. The green spinach pasta was light on the palate and was soft and tender when piping hot. The delectable flavours came mainly from the vegetables fillings, which included long beans, peas and brocolli, well spread within a generous sea of creamy and rich ricotta cheese. While the ricotta cheese within the pasta sheets were soft and creamy, we particularly enjoyed the slightly charred and crisp  ricotta cheese on the top of the lasagne which had come under the direct exposure of the baking process. Sitting atop the lasagne was the garden salad, which burst of more flavours. Vinaigrette added over the salad gave off an aromatic bitter sourness. At the same time, we thought we tasted a fair bit of Italian dressing. There a was burst of saltiness which came from the sea salt randomly scattered over the garden salad. The shaved parmasen cheese and fresh crispy sliced almonds provided a nice finish to the salad. The Green Garden Lasagne at PS. Cafe is another ideal savory dish, other than the Triple Cheese Penne, which can whet your appetite for the desserts to come.
