Vegetable Lasagne with Pesto/Alfredo sauce and Sausage.
I almost didn't put this recipe up because it took me a couple of hours to make. However it was delicious and my husband made me promise to share it. So if you have some time try this lasagne. To be fair I'm kind of slow at cutting vegetables, it was my first time attempting this recipe, and I made way too much sauce, but I adjusted it in this hub. So it may take you less time then me, ha ha. If you do try it, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
