Personal Notes:
This is one of our favorite dishes from "Grandmama Graham", another fine southern lady who taught us a great deal about food, family, and most of all, our Lord. She is truly a strong woman of great faith. Make a salad and some buttered garlic bread to go with this lasagna, and your family and guests will be amazed!
