Ayobami’s Plansagna: Dodo meets Lasagna
Ayobami says: ‘I have recently started experimenting with what we’re calling plansagna at this time: pan-fried dodo at the base, layered with shaved steak, grilled peppers, and mozzarella, then baked. It’s still a work in progress but it’s my most exciting dodo creation for now.  To make plansagna, you’ll need: Dodo Steak, sliced thinnly Grilled […]
