I still serve this with a full bowl of kale salad which we do most nights, though. Like most of you I’m sure, we are big eaters! We eat a lot of food. So the other reason I love this recipe is that it makes great leftovers, or you can even freeze it for another time.[Read more…] about How to Make Homemade Lasagna
