To be honest with you - I’m glad I don’t have a dishwasher - I don’t think I would try this!
Dishwasher Lasagna Florentine
Preparation Time: 20-30 minutes
Cooking Time: 2-hour cycle
- ½ jar of your favorite pasta sauce
- 3 fresh lasagna pasta sheets (you can also use ?oven-ready? lasagna sheets)
- ½ 16.8 oz container of Ricotta cheese
- ½ package of mixed grated cheese
- 1 cup freshly chopped spinach
- Onion flakes
- Fine herbs
- Extra thick aluminum foil
Cut three 24-inch x 12-inch sheets of aluminum foil and lie on flat surface.
Place first lasagna pasta sheet flat in the centre of the aluminum foil and spread a thick layer of pasta sauce over the entire noodle.
Mix the ricotta cheese and chopped spinach in bowl. Spread half the ricotta cheese and spinach mixture on top of the pasta sauce.
Next, sprinkle desired amount grated cheese, fine herbs, garlic, and onion flakes, and top with second pasta sheet.
Tip: To help eliminate any extra moisture while cooking in the dishwasher, it is recommended to use dried onion flakes for flavor rather than fresh onions.
Repeat with pasta sauce, ricotta cheese and spinach mixture, and herbs.
Cut the third lasagna pasta sheet into 3/8-inch strips and place on top in a criss-cross fashion, one under the other.
Sprinkle with fine herbs.
Securely wrap lasagna in the aluminum foil by taking the two longest sides of the foil and bringing them to meet in the middle, above the lasagna.
Begin carefully folding the two edges together creating a ?paper bag? effect until the two sides are folded down just above the lasagna.
Flatten the foil down so it is flat above the lasagna and begin to fold the sides in like a present, first folding the corners inside and then folding the remainder in towards the lasagna.
Once the lasagna is wrapped, place it flat in the dishwasher on the bottom rack. Tip: 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.
Set dishwasher on normal cycle and select ?heated dry? and ?sanitize? for extra heat. This cycle should take about two hours.
4 (4 ounce) fillets salmon
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 teaspoon dried dill, or to taste
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Tear off 4 sheets of aluminum foil, large enough to wrap each steak. Grease one side of each piece of foil.
Place one salmon filet on each and drizzle a little olive oil on top of each piece of salmon. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and dill weed to taste. Drizzle a bit of the lemon juice over each piece of salmon.
Wrap up the steaks, carefully sealing each foil packet. Test each packet by pressing on it. If air escapes, re-wrap it. Put on the top rack of the dishwasher and run for a full cycle, with heated drying. Salmon will be done when the dishwasher runs the full cycle.

Wrap servings tightly, folding edges as you would a package. Load packages on top shelf of dishwasher. Run through rinse cycle. When cycle is finished, you will have steamed shrimp and amazed guests.
