Christmas Day is approaching ,when lasagna is a must on the tables of Italian families but we can change them a bit. Like the best recipes of our tradition, the recipe for lasagne caprese is a useful suggestion to propose a different version of the beloved Italian dish. . This lasagna is lighter because it does not include the use of meat for meat sauce, so really ideal for vegetarians but also for the summer season!
