Matty Matheson Lasagna review
We haven’t had a chance to make either lasagna yet, let alone both side by side to compare, but if we had to choose, which we do, we would pick the naughty or nice.
- Good chorizo is so underrated. You can get just about any flavour or spice you’d like. It’s also typically fairly cheap to source from most butcher shops
- Less is more. At least when it comes to ingredients and you don’t have a full pantry.
- The salsa verde is what takes it to a whole new level. If you’re using milder chorizo add a bit more jalapeno. Spicer chorizo? use the salsa verde to cool your mouth and balance it out.
