After three years, I'm attempting to make an authentic lasagna here in my apartment in China.  The sore lack of a real oven, which is not unique to myself, but endemic to 99.9% of people's homes in this country, has put me off.  However, I do have a microwave oven that was provided as part of the furnishings in this place, and finally decided to give it a try.  

I bought imported lasagna flat noodles (Barilla), Mozorella cheese (USA), Provolone (USA), Parmesan (Italy), Ricotta tomato sauce (Barilla), Olive Oil (Italy), Pelati Tomatoes (Italy, canned), and have dried oregano, basil, thyme, fresh garlic, one yellow onion, and Inner Mongolia lean ground beef as well as peppercorns, and salt.

Here is a photo of how it looks, and I can honestly say that even though 'microwave lasagna' is nowhere as good as 'oven baked lasagna', it still meets with my approval, and that of my girlfriend.  Four cheese lasagna with tomato and meat sauce cooked in 22 minutes, with about 8 minute preparation time is not only a taste of home, but will become a monthly part of my cooking repertoire.
