I like that the lasagna is light, yet filling. However, I did not like the overpowering taste of nutmeg. I will probably replace the nutmeg with onion or garlic powder next time. Also, the sauce spread on the bottom of the dish before layering the ingredients burnt. Not bad overall.
Layers of cheese, noodles, and crisp veggies combine to make a much-loved garden lasagna. Prepare this for your next low-key dinner party.
