Vegetable Lasagna with Arrabiata Sauce

June 15, 2014



A Lasagna is instantaneous salivating, yum and mouth-watering. I have made Lasagana many times and it is always a most loved dish with all my friends.

Preparing all the layers for lasagna can be time-consuming, but if you love lasagna, it’s worth it! This lasagna dish and Chocolate Mousse was specially prepared for our Trek group get-to-gather. This dish is meatless but is full of flavor with a punch from the Arrabiata sauce and loads of cheesiness.  When you preparing this dish please do not think of calories or else you will not enjoy it.  If you are lover of cheese, please add more to enhance the taste.
