  • Lasagna for me is very easy, versatile and of course yummy! Once you’ve learned the basics, you can practically do whatever you want with it. Meats in, meats out. Veggies in, veggies out. It’s like you can make each member of the family their very own lasagna version. Once you got the hang of it, it’ll take you no time to bake one.

  • I agree completely! I’ve tried several different types of lasagna recipes and discovered that this is a dish that is very versatile and open to interpretation. While you do have to plan ahead for a good 45 to 60 minutes cooking time, you don’t have to worry too much about having the “right” ingredients on hand. With a combination of ingredients, you can easily whip up a yummy lasagna! I’ll definitely have to give some of your recipes a try!
