This past weekend was my birthday and my daughter, Nicole Bassi, made one of my favorite dinners, lasagna. This is by no means a low calorie dinner, but I feel I can overindulge on my birthday. I am a cheese lover and this dish definitely fills the bill. If you are a pasta lover, you're sure to love this dish.
