Dear SOS: My son and I enjoyed a delightful take on lasagna at the Westwood Palomino in early December. We requested a recipe. The dish was: Deconstructed Lasagna and contained a lamb mixture, cheese and mafalda pasta. The young lady would not divulge the recipe. The great blending of flavors lingers even now. We hope you can get it for us. Living in South Pasadena, we do not visit Westwood too often.
Dear Margaret: We were able to coax the recipe from Palomino. We loved the depth of flavor in this “deconstructed” take on lasagna. The components of the dish can be prepared ahead of time and assembled in a final few tosses on the stove, making it easy if you’re planning for company.
