Lasagna at parties is one of our family traditions. Growing up, I wasn't a big fan of turkey. We always ate lasagna the night before the holidays so we could eat the leftovers from the festive meal. I'll have some turkey and dressing now, but we still have lasagna the night before Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve.

This is not our traditional lasagna recipe, but I couldn't resist trying it. Let me tell you, this was fantastic! It was so easy to assemble and it tasted AMAZING! We ate this for dinner and reheated the leftovers for at least two days. So good. I loved adding the cream cheese to the cheese layer. So creamy and delicious!

This can be done ahead of time and refrigerated overnight or frozen. I would freeze it without baking and let it thaw in the refrigerator for 24 hours before baking. Just make a quick salad and some garlic bread and you will have an amazing meal that is sure to please everyone!
