So you’re still reeling after shopping for all of those Christmas gifts. But ’tis the season, and you want to lift yourself off the usual fast food and cheap eats. Steaks, paellas, pork bellies—you want them all; if only they didn’t cost more than what you’re willing to (and can) pay. Well, you don’t have to worry about your post-Christmas broke-ness anymore; here’s an under PHP200 recipe for lasagna.
The dish is often on the pricier side as far as pastas go, but our version only amounts to PHP192.45 per person. Heed our disclaimer: it won’t taste like fancy lasagna, primarily because we used cheap cheese. (If you find something better in your pantry, go ahead.) Pro-tip: don’t be afraid to burn it a little bit. The charred cheese on top complements the bechamel, and the crispy lasagna pieces are just the best.
