by Barbara Colgan
(Coopersville, Michigan)

This an end of the box type of recipe, while living in Virginia my husband worked a seasonal job making about 10.00 dollars an hour and I was unemployed so needless to say money was tight and by the end of the month our food supplies would grow short so I took a pinch of this and a snip of that and came up with my version of a lasagna. Much to my surprise my children that normally will not eat brie cheese at this with gusto. mangia
