No Bake Lasagna
This is a request from one of my friends. So, I made my version of no bake Lasagna. This is by all means, not traditional but, simply easy to put together especially when you crave for lasagna. You can always, bake it or microwave before serving it.
As always, you can adjust the ingredients according to your liking. For example, if you like garlic, go ahead and add more.Video:
