Healthy-ish Lasagna

      Last week our house was struck by the stomach bug. There was a lot of soup consumed and not much cooking. Towards the end of the week I finally felt up to making something. Originally I planned on making a crockpot lasagna, but by the time I remembered it was about 3:30, so that wasn't going to happen.

And they changed for the better. I love quesadillas and I love Greek food. In fact a lot of my favorite Greek restaurants have started serving Greek-a-dillas. They are catching on to the yumminess that is Greek … [Read more...]
