“This got rave reviews from my family. My daughter, Kirsten, said it was "better than Wise Guys" (a local restaurant) -- high praise! Country Woman via Taste of Home website. From the original contributor: "Here's a traditional lasagna with a dash of imagination. I make it different by using cream cheese and white cheddar. The layering is unusual, too, with meat on the bottom and cheese on top."”
