Eat, Drink, Remember: Chocolate Banana Lasagna

Eat.Drink.Remember 2.19

Here's a recipe in honor of my BFF's momma's two favorite things - chocolate and coffee.  Since she passed away in 2008, her family and friends have been celebrating her life and legacy by indulging in chocolate and coffee on her birthday each year.   What a great way to keep her close - the people she loves enjoying the foods she loves.   This year, Annalyn and I went through the kitchen and concocted a fun new recipe to celebrate Remy's grandma - Chocolate Banana Lasagna (with a side of coffee, of course!).  Here's how Mama makes it:

Chocolate Banana Lasagna
Ingredients: (makes two servings)
- cooking spray
- 1 banana, sliced
- 1 T. honey
- 1 T. water
- sprinkle of cinnamon
- 3-4 T. mini chocolate chips
- chocolate syrup, for garnish
- 2 leftover lasagna noodles, cooked

1.  Boil lasagna noodles if they aren't already.  Spray a small pan with cooking spray, and add sliced bananas over medium heat.  Cook for about 2 minutes per side, then remove from heat.
2.  Whisk together honey and water, then pour over bananas.  Allow to simmer for a bit, then sprinkle with cinnamon and set aside.
3.  Cut the lasagna noodles into approximate thirds.  Layer noodles, then bananas and chocolate chips, then repeat and top with a third noodle.
I made Annalyn a roll-up version:
4.  Drizzle with chocolate and sprinkle with chocolate chips.  Enjoy with a good cup of coffee and remember.
