Yummy! I have printed this out and my mouth is watering in delicious anticipation.... The only thing I plan to do differently is use whole grain Lasgne noodles. Great hub. Thanks for sharing

Using whole grain lasagna noodles is a good idea, it's full of nutrients and better for intestine. Thank you Luxmi.
