What fantastic tasting lasagna!!! You know when a five year old asks for seconds of a dish that was made with wheat noodles and mostly vegetables; you've got a "keeper" recipe on your hands! We'll definitely be making this again, next time I'll purchase a larger pan, or make a double batch! I made this particular one in a 2â€� x 8â€� x 13â€� cake pan and it was overflowing with ingredients (my fault... I used more veggies than required). The pepper jack cheese added just the right zing to the dish. I'll post pictures soon! Thanks! Made for 2010 Spring PAC
