Recipe Comix: Christmas Lasagna

"Draw us a recipe." That's the brief we sent to a slew of our favorite comic artists earlier this year; each week, we're thrilled to present what they sent back. They're fantastic, beautiful, hilarious, thoughtful, informative, and often all of the above — and they prove that a recipe doesn't just have to be words on paper. Check out all the comics published so far in the archive »

This week's comic is the second Recipe Comix foray of Carly Monardo (she's previously expounded in this space on the joys and variations of hard-boiled eggs). Here, she recalls her grandma's lasagna — a recipe that, thanks to its time-intensiveness, was made only on Christmas. In the spirit of giving, she's sharing the recipe with all of us.
