This is what happens when you hang out on Twitter: you see posts from people like Debbi Vaughn that say, “Did you know, it’s possible to make lasagna in the dishwasher? Strange but true.”
There was no way I was going to let that one pass, so I inquired and Debbi responded with a link to this site: http://www.partselect.com/JustForFun/Dishwasher-Lasagna.aspx
And sure enough, there really is an actual recipe for cooking lasagna in one’s dishwasher. Which begs the question:
It takes hours and the odds of ending up with a mushy mess strike me as pretty high. They even say (shudder), “You can also add dirty dishes and detergent to the dishwasher but only if you are confident the lasagna is tightly wrapped, otherwise you’ll end up with a very soapy lasagna.” Um, I’m not hungry anymore, thanks anyway.
I think this is another example of “Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.” What do you think? Would you cook lasagna in your dishwasher? And if so . . . Why?
