This is the 1st time I've completely invented a recipe on my own!!! I've made lasagna before, following a recipe or two, but this one certainly takes the cake! A little sloppy, a-lot-o-saucy, and scrumdidleeeeumptious!!!!! My 12-yr-old went for 3rd's while she was supposed to be cleaning up the kitchen :) It's an easy recipe you can make on your own, or with your kids.
