Enough is enough, give us some crap about FOOD Chef Roy!!!!

Alright, I suppose enough is enough.  Most people don't listen to what I actually say about vaccines, toxins in our food allowable by the FDA, nor any of the other crap I write about, so, here we have another recipe.

This one is for my chocolate lasagna.  I will be making this for my friends at Ambassador Fine Cigars West for a feast I will be cooking for them in Celebration of Father's Day in conjunction with My Father Cigars.  The event is Saturday June 7 from 2 to 5 pm.  Just a plug for my friends there, and to let anyone reading this that they can come by, meet great people and enjoy some fantastic food.  Prepared by me. 

Chef Roy's Favorite Chocolate Lasagna Recipe
1: 1 - 12 oz package Gourmet Texas Pasta Chocolate Lasagna
2: 3 cups milk
3: 3 tablespoons each butter and Organic unbleached flour
4: 3/4 cup Organic Evaporated Cane Juice (or sugar)
5: 1/4 cup cocoa powder
6: 2 - 8 ounce packages Mascarpone Cheese
7: 2 - 16 ounce jars natural Raspberry Jam
8: 1 cup pecans, toasted in 2 tablespoons butter
9:  whipped cream and Hershey's syrup for garnish
Directions: Cook the noodles in boiling water with just a bit of salt for 8 to 9 minutes. Drain, rinse and keep in cold water until use. Melt the butter in a saucepan and stir in the flour, cook over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add the milk and whisk well while bringing to a boil. When thickened, remove from heat and whisk in the cocoa powder and sugar. Spread a half cup into the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan. Place a layer of the cooked noodles over the bottom of the pan. Spread half the jam, pecans and cheese over the noodles. Dot with another half cup of the sauce. Add another layer of the noodles, cheese, pecans and jam. Top with final layer noodles and poor remaining sauce over the top. Bake in the oven at 350 for about 40 minutes, or until well bubbly. Remove from oven and cool to room temp. Slice and serve 2 inch squares of the lasagna and serve with whipped cream and drizzle fine lines of the syrup over the whole thing.  Just to let you know, this lasagna is not real sweet, there really isn't a lot of sugar in it.  Try it, see what you think.  It does make a spectacular presentation.  

I used the lasagna noodles that are available from my previous business, Gourmet Texas Pasta, they will ship to you.  Or make your own, they are easy to do.  Or use plain lasagna noodles, just add some chocolate chips with the Marscapone.
