Sometimes what you have been making for years isn’t that good anymore.  Well here is a much better lasagna and yes I put Green Beans in it!  This is a great fresh food you can really make with whatever fresh vegetables you have at the time.  Don’t like meat, then leave it out.  You could also substitute chicken, shrimp or whatever makes you happy.  Recipes are guides but it up to you to not follow them.  Hope you give this a try and don’t forget those green beans.
