Vegetarian Lasagna

As a child, my mother gave me my choice of dinners on my birthday. I always… always chose lasagna. Now that I am much older, I still haven’t lost my affection for this wonderful Italian dish. In order to appease my insatiable desire for my boyhood favorite, I have come up with my lower-fat, vegetarian version. It takes a little time but is well worth the effort… and this recipe makes excellent leftovers.
