Easy Kid Friendly Lasagna

Robert Callaway


We were picky eaters growing up. Onions and chunks of veggies were not welcomed and it made most Italian dishes hard for us to enjoy. My mother started making this lasagna and we not only loved it but continue to love it to this day. It was my grandfather's favorite dish and he would request it on his birthday.
