Recipe by Junebug
This is a recipe I originally got from Cooking Light magazine in 1995. The only change I made was to omit the 3/4 pound of ground round it called for. You can obviously add it if you wish. The prep time includes the simmer time for the sauce. This is a wonderful tasting and filling lasagna that people won't even realize is low fat unless you tell them!
