Lasagna with vegetables can easily be converted for meat lovers.
This recipe for vegetable lasagna was served at my sister-in-laws house the other evening. It was so delicious I just had to have the recipe and share it with you. For you meat-eaters out there, just layer some cooked ground beef or some sausage in between the spinach-cheese mixture and the noodles.
