Vegetarian Lasagna

Faye Patterson


This one is worth the extra calories! My daughter doesn't eat meat, so I tend to make this a lot when she's over for dinner. We just love it.

Note: If you don't have ricotta available to you, you can substitute 2 cups cottage cheese instead. It's not quite the same, but it's still good.
