In this online Spanish lesson we are going to review Indirect object pronouns and Direct object pronouns and we are going to apply these to a recipe. The “Direct Object” Is the “what” in a phrase: ví a un perro salir (I saw a dog going out); quiero un helado (I want an ice cream). What did I see? What do I want?

Me, Te, Lo/La, Nos, Los/Las

The “Indirect Object” is the receiver of something. It is not always a person, it can also be an object: dí un golpe a la mesa (I hit the table); compré esta blusa para vos (I bought this shirt for you). Who did you hit? For whom did you buy the blouse?

Me, Te, Le, Nos, Les

In this recipe you will see the “imperative” with pronouns. Remember that when we are using the “affirmative Imperative” the pronouns are placed at the end of the verb, and in the Negative they go before the verb.

Compre las tapas para lasaña en el supermercado, medio kilo de carne picada, un trozo de queso para derretir, 3 o 4 tomates, dos zanahorias, crema de leche y queso crema. Tome una sartén y póngale un chorrito de aceite. Caliéntelo unos segundos y agréguele la carne. Cocine removiendo con una cuchara hasta que la carne esté levemente cocida. Vaya agregando el tomate cortado en cubitos, la zanahoria rayada y la cebolla picada. Condimente a gusto. Cocine unos minutos todo junto a fuego lento. Retire del fuego y tape la mezcla dejándola reposar. (Buy covers for lasagna in the supermarket, half a kilo of beef, a piece of cheese to melt, 3 or 4 tomatoes, two carrots, cream and cream cheese. Take a pan and put a little oil. Heat a few seconds and added the meat. Cook it, stirring with a spoon until the meat is lightly cooked. Add the diced tomato, grated carrot and chopped onion. Season it to taste. Cook a few minutes all together over low heat. Remove from heat and cover the mixture by letting it sit.)

Mientras, en una cacerola pequeña ponga la crema y el queso. Cocínelos a fuego lento mientras revuelve con cuchara de madera. Cuando el queso esté derretido agréguele a la mezcla una cucharada de queso crema. (Meanwhile, in a small saucepan put in the cream and cheese. Cook over low heat, stirring with a wooden spoon. When the cheese is melted add to the mix a tablespoon of cream cheese.)

Caliente el horno a 200 grados por unos minutos. Cubra la superficie de una asadera con un poco de aceite y póngale encima una de las tapas de la lasaña. Arriba, póngale un poco de la mezcla con carne y un poco de salsa; luego, tápela con una nueva tapa y continúe en este orden hasta formar una torre. (Preheat the oven to 200 degrees for a few minutes. Cover the surface of the pan with some oil and top it with one of the tops of the lasagna. Then add some meat mixture and a little sauce, then cover it with a new lid and continue in this order to form a tower.)

Finalmente meta la lasaña en el horno y caliéntela por aproximadamente 20 minutos. (Finally, finish the lasagna in the oven and heat for about 20 minutes.)
