    Yum! Your images make the lasagna look very delicious. I am a vegetarian, so have taken note of your recipe. At the moment, I’m doing beans and greens mostly. I don’t typically use a recipe when I cook, just the spices I like and vegetable broth. But your recipe makes the preparation look fairly easy. Do you ship???
