    I haven’t had lasagna in ages with just two of us Jenna! Your veggie version sounds wonderful 🙂

    I was pulled in by that second pic…yes, the cheesy one. Oh my goodness.
    It also made me think of what it would be like to be your neighbor. The wonderful smells of food constantly being cooked drifting through the neighborhood. Do you have random neighbors just showing up about thirty minutes or so after putting something into the oven? I’m afraid I would have to knock on your door to investigate…I would love to be your neighbor for many reasons, my friend.

  3. I love lasagne, Jenna and this sounds amazing! You share the best recipes!

  4. Looks like a very tasty twist on the typical lasagna. I wonder if my husband would eat more veggies with this kind of recipe 😉
    Thanks for sharing with us at the #HomeMattersParty link party.
