Recipe by texasgal

This is a modified recipe for vegetable lasagna that we added meat to. Since we're "empty-nesters", I usually make 2 smaller pans and freeze one for later.

This lasagna was WONDERFUL! It had so many fresh ingredients and the cottage cheese, cream cheese, lemon mixture really did the job. I used fresh basil, chopped but otherwise followed the recipe. My family loved the kick it had - we will have this again and again!
