Garden-Style Beef Lasagna Recipe

Publisher Photo
Everyone who has tried this fabulous lasagna dish absolutely loves it; rants and raves over it; and asks me for the recipe. People are always surprised that it can be prepared entirely in the microwave. For a change of pace, I like to add a layer of sliced zucchinis. –Micaela Miller, Corinth, Texas
