Vegetable Lasagna

on August 26, 2015

When I was younger my mom would buy the Stouffer’s Vegetable Lasagna, which I LOVED!  Because only mom and I liked it, we didn’t have it often and when we did I ate a good portion of it… so of course it was something I made sure to have when I got married.  When it became too expensive to buy, I made my own recipe.  When I changed my eating habits it was easy to continue making this – all I needed to do was change from white pasta to whole wheat.  Recently I served it to a group of friends who requested the recipe, so I am sharing it with the world!  You can find this and more in this document – my Healthy Recipies,  This is just a general guideline, add any vegetables you like!  I often use whatever I have on hand – the last time I made it I included cabbage, green beans and peas – it always turns out great.
