Grandma’s Roasted Asparagus Lasagna

This is a tasty lasanga recipe from my grandma's wonderful collection. It is easy to prepare. While it isn't a traditional lasagna, everyone you serve it to will love this creamy version.

I've tried to find healthier alternatives to this recipe, like using non-fat milk or replacing olive oil cooking spray instead of actual oil. The lasagna doesn't take long to prepare, and the roasted asparagus adds a great flavor.
