Vegetable Lasagna

gaynel mohler


Since I am so restricyed with sodium and fats, I am always looking for "good" recipes that can make my meal time more of a variety. I found this in The Low Fat Way To Cook book my mother gave me some years ago. She wrote inside the cover "To Gaynel From Mom" I find myself writing inside books I give to my grandsons and friends following this action of my mothers. This recipe looks so good, and after I get it made, I will post a picture.
