This fresh white lasagna celebrates whatever greens are in season. When you blanch or pre-cook your greens, keep in mind that what starts off as a sink full will cook down to a much smaller amount. This versatile lasagna welcomes any kind of cheese, spices and certainly chicken or sausage for the carnivores in the family.
