Spinach and Mushroom Lasagna

May 18, 2015

I was given a gift and I mean a wonderful gift.  It was the one and only fabulous Delverde Pasta, but something I had not tried before, their Instant Lasagna Noodles!  A perfect treat for those of us living in Florida and no cook anything sounds like a good plan.
