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.”

    Yum! And so much speedier than other lasagna recipes I have followed. I used ground chicken (cheaper) & did not chop the vegetables after I microwaved them. It seemed unnecessary.-Theresa

    Turned out very good - I'm just glad I thought to put a baking sheet under the pan to catch the spill over

    I made this recipe for my family and we gobbled it up! Leftovers were also excellent. I loved it so much that I made it a few days later for a new mom and my sister made it for friends. Definitely a keeper!
