Vegetarian Lasagna-Home Made with Fresh Herbs

Lasagna is one of the most delicious and easiest to make Italian food. One tray is a meal for many. Serve with salad, garlic bread and your favorite beverage…fast and easy!

This recipe calls for one Patty Pan squash. In case you are wondering what that is, it’s a tender summer squash, like zucchini or yellow squash. You’ll notice in the video that is shaped like a scalloped flying saucer, which makes it a bit of a novelty. It cooks much like any other summer squash. If you are a spinach lover, this would be a great substitution.
