There’s a Scout I’ve been getting to know for a couple years now. He is quick to volunteer to cook for his patrol on group campouts, and he has a favorite go-to recipe for dutch oven lasagna. The problem is, something has ALWAYS gone wrong. It hasn’t necessarily been his fault – Cooks and those who do the shopping aren’t always the same people on a Scout trip, and he’s had to deal with shortage of ingredients, the wrong ingredient… always something, for several tries now.
Persistence pays off though, and this past weekend, it all came together… and it was GOOD! So good, it was almost gone before I got to get a taste, and take a picture. Now that he knows how the finished product CAN turn out, I’m sure this will remain a favorite.
I’ve seen a variety of these recipes, which basically use the common theme of replacing carefully layered noodles and cheese with pre-made, frozen ravioli (or tortellini, or…). Leads to simple construction, quick cooking, and overall goodness. Rather than repeating it, I’ll link to this version. Our only difference was to use a liner, and cook the sausage separately in a different skillet, just to simplify the cleaning.
Good luck in your attempts!
