Last summer I was looking for a recipe for White Lasagna as I have allergies to tomatoes and especially if they are canned tomatoes they seem to hurt my stomach. Well, it was for my father's birthday in August 2010 that I first made this recipe. It was delicious and everyone loved it. This recipe I found on Pilsbury.com and it is a make ahead lasagna. So, you prepare it and then it sits in the frig over night. Or you can do like me and cook the noodles first and then make the same day. Hope you enjoy.
