  1. Thanks for the recipe, Amanda. It sounds right up my alley so I’ve copied it to my hard drive! Enjoy the rest of your week – only one day to go, lol!

  2. I’m starving, and leftovers? Please send my way … thanks 😀

  3. Ah! Lazagne! I love it! My daughter and I used to work on a batch of this together for the whole family! I don’t have the recipe any longer. Moving more than !000 miles to another state reduced our belongings substantially. Thank you for sharing this comfort food recipe! Blessings to you, Amanda.

    • My daughter’s favourite dish too but she lives fifteen thousand miles away and my heart bleeds…hopefully towards the end of the year, she’ll be here permanently. Can’t wait, guess how many lasagne’s we’ll be making 🙂 xxx

      • I am so happy to hear your daughter will be moving near to you permanently. I hope someday my family will be here, but I will have to wait and see what happens. I see many great lasagnes in your future!!!

      • Can’t wait my friend. It’s Saturday morning here (5.30am) going to be a bright sunny day and and my wish for you is peace and love, a wonderful weekend xxx
