Lasagna with cream cheese and ricotta appeared as a sweet morning treat to my family during the busy week mornings.
It’s not an original Italian recipe, where meat and tomato sauce should be present, contrary it’s our family variation of lasagna: sweet and with berries:) Forgive us Italian mothers, we love it this way:)
