Why I Love This Recipe

Edie would always say, "The fastest way to a man's heart is through his stomach." She never believed that a woman should spend all day in the kitchen. She slipped this recipe to us just before her accident. So this recipe will immortalize Eddie in our hearts, minds and stomachs forever.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

I loved your tip about making lasagna in a bread pan. I always make extra to freeze but never thought of baking in a bread pan. By the way, hubby would enjoy helping you wash your car.
