Not Your Mama’s Lasagna

Hello my good people!!

I am here to FINALLY share with you my lasagna recipe.  Warning: This is “NOT YO MAMA’S LASAGNA.”  You have been warned. 🙂

**This is not, I repeat this is not one of the healthy recipes I like to share. This is strictly for those looking for some comfort food!! If that is you…you are in good company. 🙂

Okay, so my recipe was created literally from the dome, based on the lasagnas I have tasted in the past.  But, I felt like it needed a little “MPH” in order to make it unique.  So, the general idea is very similar to your traditional lasagna, except with my own little twist!  My family has accepted the fact that they are ‘willing’ participants in my culinary experiments.  And this one did not disappoint! The special ingredient gives it just that extra push that I believe all lasagnas need.  Its the perfect little addition to this household favorite.  I won’t hold you in suspense too much longer, I know yall are dying to try it out for yourselves!  Which, I hope you do!  Comment below letting me know how it turns out for you!

Here it is:

9-12 lasagna pasta pieces (do NOT boil before laying in pan)
