Lots of Lasagne!

I feel kind of bas about the simple name for this dish becasue it's not at all simple make.  It actually is quite time consuming, but well worth the effort because lasagne is such a treat.  This really just your typical lasagne for vegetarians, and has quite a good flavour.  Similar to soups, it gets even better the next day.  I ended up making ramkins out of the leftovers, because my casserole dish wasn't big enough to fit everything in....
