Easy Vegetarian Lasagna
I was a vegetarian for 5 years – more as a protest to the meat industry in general and to parents in particular.
No, they were not in the meat industry but they did not think much of vegetarians – Score!
Can’t wait until my boys become teenagers what joy!
Sleepless nights, worrying and phoning emergency rooms on a daily basis…exactly like when they were babies.
I’m dreading it already.
My boys are very different, one says he’s “half vegetarian” ie he loves vegetables and not to keen on meat unless it’s bacon fried to a crisp.
The other loves meat in any shape or form and of cause pasta morning noon and night.
They both like this Vegetarian Lasagna but for different reasons.
