Sneaky Lasagna

Shurtorra Sherman


I call it sneaky because my guy claims that he HATES zucchini. One day I had just one lonely zucchini and snuck it in there. He LOVED it, although he was a little upset when I told him what was in it. But hey every time I make it he eats it like it is the best thing he has ever tasted.
