- I found this recipe months ago on the internet, unfortunately I can not remember the website. I made this for dinner tonight and OMG! It is absolutely AMAZING! I loved it and even my picky 6 yr old DD asked for seconds!
- Note: I think next time I make this I will use eggplant instead of lasagna noodle, will let you know. How it turns out.
