Isn’t it just a lasagne?

No, because it’s bread instead of pasta. And chilli instead of ragu. And there’s no bechamel sauce. Apart from that…

My least favourite Tom Cruise film

I have a Nigella book with a very similar recipe which she does call something like that

I’m never gonna cook it

I did something similar once, perhaps inspire by Nigella idk, it was shit because the breads just went soggy.

looks like lasanga tho

not really a fan of mixing up cuisine like this

If I want Lasagna I’ll make lasagna. If I want tortillas I’ll make enchiladas or burritos or whatever

You don’t even fusion bro?!?!

I went (with a group) to a fusion japanese / Tapas thing - not for me

Having said that , I’ve probably eaten loads of “Fusion” asian food (mixtures of different Asian cuisine) and that always seems to work

It’s spelled Wok


You mean sushi?

it wasn’t sushi

that would have been much better



Speaking of Nigella -

I will not follow any stupid american recipe that has cup as a measurement. Idiots. What size fucking cup eh ?

doesn’t scan, YSC

Is this the lasagne thread?
