I wanted to make a lasagna to bring to work, as my boss was leaving, and I wanted something different from the regular ones with spaghetti sauce. This is the one I chose, and I have to tell you it is full of flavor and creamy and really delicious! I am so happy I made this one, as I got many compliments from people at work who had a piece. I had several people ask me for the recipe too! If you want to try it, DO because I tell you, you will be making it again and again, just like I plan to do!
