I would love to see the lasagne recipe!

Here it is:

I use chopped onion, chopped yellow, red, orange bell peppers and chopped (frozen) spinach as the veggies when I make it. So good! The egg is optional. I skip it because I'm a vegetarian and it turns out fine w/o it. It's a good recipe because you can customize the veggies to your preferences. It's the best lasagna I've made yet and very easy in the slow cooker.

My husband makes his lasagne in the microwave without precooking anything. You layer everything just like you would for lasagne made in the oven and cook it in the microwave.


I have to make everything at home because I'm allergic to the parsley or carrot group of foods. That means no parsley, carrots, celery, parsnips, cumin, coriander, fennel, dill, caraway, and anise. So eating out would be a nightmare. Celery and carrots are used often, especially celery with its root, leaves, seeds, and stalk used in many different ways. The root is the worst culprit for an allergic reaction. It's concentrated with the proteins that cause the problem.


I've learned to live without canned goods and prepackaged foods. I can't even open up a jar of spaghetti sauce because the last ingredient which says, "spices" meaning celery root or root juice extract. That's highly concentrated and causes a multitude of symptoms. It took me a long time to figure it all out, but now I'm not having the physical problems I used to have. I haven't been to a restaurant since 2012 when I had a severe reaction to a taco salad. I believed it was salmonella, but now I know it was the nitrite they used on the salad to keep it fresh. Celery root extract juice. Yikes!


Our dog eats a raw diet. All we need to do is grab raw chicken scraps or a turkey neck or pork or beef or heart or liver or a combination of them, weigh them on our scale, and serve. His coat is shiny and soft. And he's never had ear infections. And he's got plenty of sass and energy, and he's past middle age for his breed. His got little tartar on his teeth.


Wish I could eat raw turkey necks too. My teeth could use a good cleaning.   ;)
