Alaskan Halibut Lasagna

 Alaskan Halibut Lasagna
I use tender, mild halibut that we catch in Cook's Inlet near our home for this delectable white lasagna. Even "meat and potatoes lovers" compliment its great taste. You can substitute cod or chicken for the halibut if you like. -Evelyn Gebhardt, Kasilof, Alaska
