So at first I had this big ole April Fools post planned that may or may not have been regarding me being pregnant. After giving some thought to it, I realized it may be quite disheartening when the fools part came out to those family members & friends of mine who frequently like to beg me to pop a baby in my belly.
So I thought, if I'm not going to do that..I might as well post a Lasagna recipe, right?
Because when the day comes that I do have a baby in my belly..
you better believe I'll be eatin this stuff up.
And just to make sure we're all on the same page here, I'm not preggo.
But I do like lasagna.
Especially this lasagna, my mom's special recipe.
So special I don't even know if I'm allowed to share it with the world like I'm doing right now?
Guess its too late...
Not to brag or anything, buuuuut I've had several people now tell me this is the best lasagna they've ever had.
Hope your ready for the endless compliments this dish delivers.
Oh, and the name? I made it up. But after you make it, you'll agree its pretty fitting.
