I think that this was the fastest version of lasagna that I have ever made in my life and it was pretty tasty too! Not too hard to throw together, especially when I was running a little late from going and seeing the adorable lab puppies that my sister's dog just had couple of nights ago!! We were still eating by our normal 6:00 and that was with no prepping beforehand like I usually do!
