Sneaky Lasagna

 Sneaky Lasagna
“Lasagna’s always been a family favorite," explains Catherine Yoder of New Paris, Indiana. "But since my children and husband aren’t very fond of some veggies, I started ‘sneaking’ them into this dish and they hardly notice! It feeds a crowd and is great for potlucks or family reunions.”
