In my previous opinion, it's not really lasagne if there's no spinach in it. This recipe lacks spinach, so I was prepared to mock it, but it's actually really good, except for the time requirement. I hadn't read the fine print, and while I had planned to prepare this on Sunday evening after my Drive, the minimum-2-hours in the 'fridge meant supper would be intolerably late; that's a big part of the reason I did Mashed Potatoes with leftover turkey, instead. So, I assembled this lasagne and put it in the 'fridge for the following day's supper.
I scaled the recipe down by 1/3 (kinda, I used the full amounts of cheeses (roughly 1 kg of cheese goes into this), because another opinion of mine regarding lasagne is that it is a vehicle for cheese) but still ended up with enough for multiple days of lunches. This is a recipe that falls into the odd category of "Americans turning not-hamburgers into simulacra of hamburgers", a transformation largely resting on the bacon in this case. I also used a blob of parsely-goo from a tube rather than fresh parsely because the minimum purchase of parsely is enough for about a dozen copies of this recipe and I had no plans to make any other recipes that call for parsely. I think I can keep this tube in the 'fridge for a few weeks, which is better than the few days that the fresh stuff stays fresh for.
Look at that second-last sentence! Parsely parsely parsely!
