What we love most about having a home store is always having ingredients for things we love to eat. We’ve been known to say “If a true crisis hits, as long as I have cheesy meals, I’ll be OK!”. Well one of our favorite meals is lasagna. This month we did some fun posts on how THRIVE can be used in LASAGNA! In case you missed them, here are the posts:
|Every month Thrive picks ONE featured product and puts it on sale at a substantial discount. All customers who are part of the Thrive Q Monthly Autoship program can buy as many of these QPON items as they want. Stock up on the QPON product every single month and always pay the lowest prices. Don’t replenish until it goes on sale again!
This month the QPON item is Freeze-Dried Zucchini, a favorite of a lot of our customers because who ever just has zucchini ON HAND? Chef Todd shows us an amazing vegetarian lasagna recipe using the Freeze-Dried Zucchini and lots of other Thrive ingredients. Give it a try, you can always substitute in fresh items for those you don’t have in your home store yet.

|Powdered Eggs are one of the March Monthly Specials (grab them before prices go up March 31st). Julie has an amazing spinach noodle recipe (aka Hulk noodles) that is a family favorite. She has often wondered if noodles could be made with all pantry ingredients, so this month she gave it a whirl with the powdered eggs and it totally worked!
Julie gives the recipe for both fresh and “pantry” versions of the noodles. In her pantry version she uses freeze-dried spinach which is a product we LOVE since spinach seems to go bad so fast in the fridge.

|As part of a new challenge for herself, Jodi is trying new recipes and converting them to all shelf stable. That way she can feel confident in making a wide variety of items without having to run to the store for one ingredient just to make a new recipes she wants to try.
Earlier this month she attempted a pretty intense lasagna that called for ricotta cheese. She decided to make some homemade ricotta cheese using powdered milk. You would not believe how easy and yummy this is. There is no reason to ever buy expensive ricotta at the store again.
Read the post for a full tutorial and the lasagna recipe too.
|We all know that it takes a LOT of cheese to make a good lasagna. People often question whether or not freeze-dried cheese is REALLY a good substitute for cheese. We can vouch 100% that freeze-dried cheese works great in lasagna … and pizza. However, you can increase your chances of success by reconstituting it properly.

So we challenge you to either try one of these lasagna recipes, or take your own and substitute in some Thrive ingredients for the fresh items and see what happens. You just might be pleasantly surprised!
