Here we are again on another culinary adventure. I've always considered myself pretty good at lasagna, but a recent trip to Wisconsin proved I had more to learn. I've always seasoned my ricotta mixture with italian seasoning and I even used eggs once upon a time (no more) and pepperoni on top. My bestie opened … Continue reading La-La-Lasagna
