MANDEVILLE? Café Lynn's Chef Joey Najolia's on the preparation for his braised spare rib lasagna: "It's a lot of work. It's very time consuming; it's a pain. But most things that take time and effort generally do taste better." They braise the short ribs on the bone for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, and make their own ricotta cheese and pasta. "The sauce is braising liquid from the short ribs with a little bit of cream added to it." [Nola.com]
