"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."
This is a great lasagna that takes about 40 minutes of hands on cooking time but is worth every one of those minutes. It is rich and comforting but the best part is leftovers. It is worth spending the extra time to make two pans as it will keep well for a few days and also can be frozen for later.
Eating healthy is as much about the amount of food you eat as any other issue. A serving size of pasta is two ounces (the amount in the Nutrition Facts on a box or bag of pasta). Since the standard box of pasta is one pound, there are eight servings in a box with each serving having about 200 calories.
