Rachel: Has anybody seen my engagement ring?
Phoebe: Yeah, it's beautiful.
Rachel: Oh God, oh God, oh God oh God oh God oh God.... (Starts to look under the couch cushions.)
Phoebe: No, look, don't touch that!
Rachel: Oh, like I wasn't dreading tomorrow enough, having to give it back to him... 'Hi Barry! Remember me? I'm the girl in the veil who stomped on your heart in front of your entire family!' Oh God and now I'm gonna have to return the ring, without the ring, which makes it so much harder...
Monica: Easy Rach, we'll find it. (To all) Won't we!
Chandler and Joey: Oh! Yeah!
Joey: Alright, when'd'ya have it on last?
Phoebe: Doy! Probably right before she lost it!
Chandler: You don't get a lot of 'doy' these days...
Rachel: I know I had it this morning, and I know I had it when I was in the kitchen with...
Rachel: (looks at the lasagna and realizes something) Ohhhhh, don't be mad...
Monica: You didn't.
Rachel: Oh, I am sorry...
Monica: I gave you one job! (Starts to examine the lasagna through the bottom of the glass pan.)
Rachel: Oh, but look how straight those noodles are!
I enjoyed my cheesy hummus sauce that I made for The Joey Special so much that I wanted to do a similar white bean-based cheese sauce for the lasagna. I saw a few bloggers also using bean-based cheese in lasagna sauce lately, so I knew it could be done. Then, I baked eggplant and zucchini slices, sauteed onions, mushrooms, and garlic, and made/maybe-used-a-store-bought marinara sauce and layered it all together, as you do.
SPINACH & WHITE BEAN
- Blend all ingredients except the spinach in a blender until smooth
- Transfer to a mixing bowl with the spinach, and mix. Taste for salt and pepper.
For the baked vegetables:
Bake the vegetables at 350 for about 20 minutes, until fully cooked. Then cut them into small pieces for easier ability to cut pieces of finished product.
For the sauteed mushrooms:
Saute the garlic and onion in a bit of olive oil over medium high heat for about 6 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook until browning and all the water evaporates.
This came out so well! My omnivorous dinnermates attacked it before I could even get a finished picture, and gave it a great review. I think I might make a bean-based cheese instead of a tofu-based one every time I make lasagna!
When I finally got to cut my own piece I AHHH WHAT'S THIS OH NO WHAT HAPPENED I RUINED IT! Look what's in there har har!
- In another lasagna-themed "Friends" episode, why did Judy have to serve frozen lasagna at her party instead of what Monica made?
- What did Rachel learn when she did return the ring to her ex-fiance?
- What is your favorite Judy Gellar moment? Can you guess mine? (Haha that's not fair but try!)
