The first time I ever ate this was when invited for dinner at a dear friends. My kids loved it. It's a nice alternative to traditional Lasagna.. I actually prefer this over traditional, and no noodles to cook...can't get any easier than that. My version is a fancier version of my friends..I can't leave any recipe is DELICIOUSO!! Enjoy!
