Lasagna 2

I am so excited to share this recipe with you all! This recipe is one of our favorites in my house.

My boys love creating this meal together as a family and enjoying the amazing flavors at the end. It is such a fun recipe to get children involved with as they will love rolling the noodles up! My boys also love pairing this dish with an antipasto salad and fresh garlic bread.

I highly recommend throwing some music on, grabbing a glass of wine and spending some time creating this simple meal together with family or friends.
