Recipe: Quick Lasagna

Husband managed to get a job here in Melbourne. Nothing fancy but it can add-up extra money to our pockets to pay some bills in Malaysia. So since husband's no longer around to accompany me jalan-jalan, I have like lotsa time at home. Cooking and cleaning and studying and shopping. Lol. :D

Hence the need to make him good food is a MUST! So that husband will be happy & can earn more money for wifey, er us. ;) So apart from many dishes I cooked for husband and me for Iftar, I made him lasagna. It's very easy btw and here's the recipe:

Sorry for the poor quality photos, I just took it from my Instagram and the warm light at my house doesn't do any justice to my food & photos.
