A tray of bubbling hot lasagna is the perfect winter comfort food. Tonight, I am making a gooey melting 5-cheeses lasagna.
Cheeses are the star in this vegetarian lasagna recipe. It features creamy ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan, cheddar and blue cheese.
The hint of blue cheese is rare, but it adds an elegant taste to this dish. Although, it is meatless, but I have added sweet potato mash, zucchini and mushroom to make it more substantial. It turns out pretty spectacular.
This meal will satisfy any hunger your family may have. So treat them tonight to a meal they won’t stop raving about.
