Weeknights with Giada: Quick and Simple Recipes to Revamp Dinner


Weeknights with Giada: Quick and Simple Recipes to Revamp Dinner Cover




sweet corn and basil lasagna

serves 4 to 6

Vegetable oil cooking spray

3 cups frozen corn, thawed

½ cup heavy cream, at room temperature

2 garlic cloves, peeled

1 cup (8 ounces) mascarpone cheese, at room temperature

1 ½ cups grated pecorino romano cheese

Grated zest of 1 large lemon

¼ teaspoon kosher salt

¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

¾ packed cup chopped fresh basil leaves

1 ½ cups (6 ounces) shredded sharp provolone cheese 

6 no-boil lasagna sheets (about half a 9-ounce box)

Olive oil, for drizzling


Place an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray an 8-inch square glass baking dish with vegetable oil cooking spray. In a food processor, blend the corn, cream, and garlic until chunky. Add the mascarpone cheese, 1 cup of the romano cheese, the lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth. Add the basil and pulse until just combined. Spread one-third of the corn mixture on the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with one-third of the provolone cheese. Place 2 lasagna sheets on top. Repeat twice with the remaining corn mixture, provolone cheese, and lasagna sheets. Sprinkle with the remaining ½ cup romano cheese and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the top is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Cool for 10 minutes. Cut into 6 pieces and serve.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "In her sixth cookbook, De Laurentiis explains to her readers, 'This is what weeknights look like in my house.' Motivated by her desire to sit down to dinner with her husband and four-year-old daughter despite her busy schedule, De Laurentiis has 'shaken up her weeknight repertoire to include only dishes that can be pulled together after a full day... and be accomplished in under an hour.' De Laurentiis delivers on her promise — the book is full of quick, easy dishes that follow her formula — simple and pleasing. A chapter on soups and salads includes jalapeño and cherry tomato gazpacho that requires no cooking at all, and caramelized onion, chicken, and grapefruit salad that calls for shredded rotisserie chicken breasts to save time. Pizza with onion, sausage, and basil and calzone recipes use store-bought pizza dough, and turkey and pancetta pot pies are made with unroll-and-bake pie crust. Though not terribly original or innovative, De Laurentiis's recipes in this book are effective. The dishes are predictable but pleasant. Also included, 'Change of Pace,' a chapter of internationally inspired dishes like vegetables in red curry and Asian quinoa with salmon, and 'Breakfast for Dinner,' which includes a tasty spin on eggs Florentine and a peach and cherry frittata made with frozen fruit. Visually appealing, the book is full of photos of both De Laurentiis's food and family. Agent: William Morris Endeavor." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
