New Year's Lasagna

Before welcoming 2013, have you already planned on how to celebrate your New Year?
Well, same as Christmas, my husband and I are celebrating it at home.
As usual, I'll be the one preparing dinner and everything, my husband requested Lasagna again. He likes my recipe and it's made of vegetables, no meat!
When we also have friends coming over for dinner, I serve Lasagna sometimes and most of their comments: it's yummy! *blush* Lol!!!
So I have decided to share my recipe and I really hope you like it. :)
