Yummy Lasagna Recipe 

One of my colleague called me one morning and she said she dreamed of me cooked lasagna recipe. It was a weird moment, to be honest, and after rationalising it back, it turned out that she’s pregnant!Alhamdulillah… In Malaysia, we believe that if a woman is pregnant and request to eat something, then it is best to fulfil her wish.

So last night, me and my niece cooked the lasagna since our division open house is to be postponed. Kindly refer below for the full recipe. Anyway, the image below is lasagna before baking. I don’t have the chance to snap any picture after bake hahaha:-

  4. Pour in white sauce
  5. Sprinkel the mozzarella and parmesan cheese
