Barb 's Review | Rating

I can't remember how many times I've made this, but it's a favourite with friends and family. I always get asked to make my lasagne or I get told, "But your lasagne doesn't taste as nice as Aunty B's!" Even my son told his wife that, luckily she took it in good grace and to her advantage said, "You can cook tonight, because my lasagne's no where as good as yours!"
