Vegetable Lasagna Baked

The weather was rainy and blustery ,an usually dark autumn day. It was a good day to stay indoors ,but boredom was a persistent foe . So,me and a friend of mine rifled through some of the cookbooks and recipes from aging , tattered magazines my mother had kept on the living-room bookshelf. We discovered an old, yellowed newspaper clipping of a vegetarian lasagna recipe pressed between the back-pages of her 'Joy of Cooking ' cookbook. We tried making it together and the rest is history on the deepening of a long and beautiful friendship.
