A basic recipe for lasagna where you can add any number of veggies or extras. I found this recipe on the foodgeeks.com website. The noodles do not need to be pre-cooked. I normally layer the white sauce in the middle and on top and fry up mushrooms and peppers with the ground beef (which differs slightly from the recipe below).
