Recipe by Rita M
When my boyfriend and I started dating, he told me his favorite meal was lasagna. Ha, The only time in my life I had even attempted to make it, it was awful. But I really liked this guy and I wanted to impress him, so I searched and searched the internet for the perfect recipe. I found one with all these expensive cheese and Italian spices. I decided on that one it was very expensive and it was bad, he didn't like it (neither did I)and being the sweet guy he is, he said, "But honey you tried". The next week-end he cooked his recipe for me and this is it. It's very cheap and easy to make and we love it. That was 4 years ago and we are still making lasagna together.
