SHIFRA KLEIN

am always fascinated how a variation in the way the food is presented impacts the “wow!” factor and the enjoyment of the people eating it. Serving salad in a flat salad bowl versus a deep one, or garnishing fish with microgreens and roasted lemons, or using a squeeze bottle to drizzle sauce over chicken or greens are a few such examples. The following lasagna rolls are another such instance. Interestingly enough, cooking lasagna in individual portions also intensified the flavor of each roll, as the edges of the noodles and the cheese achieved perfect crispy perfection. Of course, you can prepare them in a traditional lasagna format, but forming them into rolls is an extra step that delivers in both taste and presentation.

C AP RESE ROLLS I love the simplicity of this dish. The taste is so clean, fresh and gourmet, and a break from some heavier dairy meals.

8 lasagna noodles 2 balls fresh mozzarella 16 fresh basil leaves

16 slices fresh tomatoes Good-quality olive oil Salt and pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. 2. Thinly slice fresh mozzarella for 16 slices. Place one slice mozzarella on noodle. Top with basil and tomato. 3. Roll lasagna noodle and place in baking tray. Drizzle noodles with oil and salt and pepper. 4. Top lasagna noodles with remaining mozzarella and bake for twenty minutes or until mozzarella is melted and bubbly. SHAVUOS 2014

Roasted Asparagus with Green Onion Dressing

WHEAT& DAIRYFREE FEAST BY MELINDA STRAUSS When I think of Shavuot, I think of my table covered in a sea of rich dairy cuisine. A dairy menu infused with thick cream-based soups, cheesy lasagna, baked macaroni and cheese with a buttery crumb topping, fresh mozzarella Caprese and lots of sweet cheesecake! But this year, things will be a bit dierent in my house. 56

DESSERT CREPES


Many associate Shavuos with the classic blintz — savory mashed potatoes or sweet cheese, topped with sour cream. Why not celebrate with a variety of styles and flavors by setting up a crepe bar? There's just something about make-your-own bars that's so fun and exciting! Setting up a savory bar for lunch, or a sweet one for dessert allows your guests to assemble crepes that suit their personal tastes and palate. So instead of asking, "Potato or cheese?" you can sit back and enjoy while your guests do the same.

Cheesecakes BY MELISSA KAYE

In the warm days of summer, being able to avoid turning on an oven, yet creating creamy delicate desserts is a real treat. The following desserts are incredible for Shavuot, a family celebration, or use Tofutti products to make them pareve as an option for Shabbat dessert.
