Oh how I always loved my mom’s crescent lasagna meal that she would make a few times a year, it is a nice twist on the standard original lasagna dinner. Now I know it is probably not the healthiest meal for you but in my mind it is one of the tastiest meals. I have been craving this for quite sometime now, but unfortunately I can’t go over to my moms and ask her to make if for me right now. If you have been following my on twitter or are friends with my on Facebook you might have heard that she had a stroke in November. Well I am sure by the end of this year she will be back in the kitchen making some of my favorite meals again.
