Grilled Lasagna - The Results

We made Grilled Lasagna this weekend.  The premise is to build your lasagna in foil, add a bit of water and then stick on the grill to cook.  Seems easy.

And mostly, that's true.  However, it is a bit complicated (or perhaps tedious is the right word) to make.

The lasagnas are made in individual portions in individual foil packets.  Fun for serving, but not so fun for making. Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of the preparation, but I did manage to get one of the finished product.

And since we were grilling, and we had fresh corn from the garden, I had to throw that on too!

I did kind of screw up the idea of not heating up the kitchen by making a nice loaf of Italian bread.  But come on, how can you have lasagna without Italian bread?

A few things I learned:

  • lower heat on the grill would be better
  • more moisture inside the packet would be a bit better (more tomato I think next time)
  • I did cook a fresh tomato and meat sauce to top it instead of fresh grated tomato - and we all loved that

Bottom line?  I liked it.  I think it's a great idea, with lots of versatility, and with a bit of tweaking, I think we can find the perfect way to beat the heat AND have a wonderful lasagna!
