Mrs. Emmet Tenly's recipe for LASAGNA
WOW! This is one of the most worn & used recipe in my collection! It was published in the Council Bluffs Nonpareil in 1968! At some point in time I copied it onto a recipe card but by the time I slipped it into a plastic sleeve I’d used it so many times that now
it is difficult to read through the accumulated smudges. It is an excellent, easy and quick recipe for lasagna! I don’t know Mrs. Tenly but I thank her for sharing the recipe that I have served to my family many many times.
