Fried Green Tomato Lasagna

My family likes lasagna, so I usually make it once a week. This variation is one I created to use tomatoes that aren't quite ripe yet. My family and friends love it.

    This is so good. Made it today as a side dish. The tomatoes are from our own garden. Since Green Tomatoes are not available in stores where we live, I can only make this in the summer when we have a garden.

    If you are going to make a comment please read the recipe entirely. There are fried green tomatoes in the dish. I have not made this yet but will this summer when I have lots of both ripe & green tomatoes. Thanks for the idea.
