This is my "New Baby" recipe I use. All of my friends get a big tin pan of this recipe to feed the family for a good week when a new baby arrives. I've made it at least 6 times and everybody LOVES it. Only subs for me are using fresh mushrooms and a jar of Trader Joe's Tomato Basil Marinara and a small can of diced tomatoes instead of the canned tomato sauce. FANTASTIC!
Great turned out perfect both times. Once w/ spinach one w/o because I didn't have any. I haven't added the mushrooms yet but will someday. Thank you for making my first Lasagna a success! My 2 year old have 3rds both times.
