Lasagna


Lasagna…….A mix of tomato and bechamel sauce perfectly melt with cheese. A truly classic dish that everyone can make. I made my one more creamy and cheesy. because I love cheese and white sauce on my pasta. It blends well with the tomato sauce matching with my spicy tabasco or chilli jalapeno pepper sauce..Wow, Are you hungry? coz’ I am……………..Did you know that bechamel sauce is made with fresh milk. This fresh milk is the best source of calcium supply to our body. Calcium protects the body from major chronic ailments such as cancerous chemicals, bone loss, arthritic condition, migraine headaches, pre-menstrual syndrome, and obesity in children and aids in losing unwanted fats.
