    Right, cooking dinner. What could I serve with lasagne?

    Oh, and don't say 'chips' - yes, I know, they're lovely, but I'm being a bit poncier than that. I considered some roasted vegetables - parsnips and **** - but I will certainly value some other contributions; extra points for originality.

    Salad usually works quite well, along with some garlic bread.

    Hello Lib. I recommend my festive favourite, pan fried robin on melba toast. Is very easy recipe - catch 20 robins, pluck, season with lots of salt and soy sauce and pan fry until brown. Serve on home made melba toast with nice light red wine, perhaps a beaujolais. Serves 8 - 20 people.

    I'd normally just have salad.

    But green beans go well with most things too.

    Personally I'd find roasted parsnips and stuff a bit much, a bit too rich tasting, with lasagne. But then, I do tend to eat pretty big portions of lasagne...

    I'm not a chef - can't cook anything - but I like eating so I think I've got at least some input here.
    I wouldn't really do chips/potatoes/anything carby like that, all of that is contained in the pasta sheets of the lasagna. I'd second either a nice salad or some garlic bread - just to spice it up a little.
    If you don't want to do just a regular salad you could do something with spinach. Mmm, popeye

    :confused: Is that even allowed? Who would bother to do that.

    I would say salad or some kind of lighter veggies, beans, brocolli type.

    I wouldn't personally go with potato as you've already got similar carbs as pasta.

    Either salad (you can make it as fancy as you like!) and garlic bread, or some lightly steamed green vegetables - green beans, broccoli and courgette, for example.

    A side salad is pretty typical with lasagne... though personally I'm quite fond of stuffed peppers/mushrooms or asparagus done in the oven with a light lemon/garlic sauce.

    Don't forget cereal mixed with marmite for that added goodness. Along with a few shots of whisky to top it off.

    I usally make my own wedges with a spicy cajun coating (1tbls paprika 1tbls cumin 1tsp chilli powder 1tbls pepper 1tsp garlic powder 1tsp onion granules) and a salad with my own dressing (2 tbls olive oil 2tbls balsamic vinegar, 1 tsp brown sugar 1tsp mustard 1 clove of garlic crushed)

    good luck
