Ham and Caramelized Onion Lasagne
Fresh Fruit

Cooking time: 60 minutes for menu   Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

     Last night the onions were cooked fast to brown; in this recipe they are cooked slowly to caramelize.  Either way, a bit of covered cooking gives them a head start.  This is another lasagne without tomatoes.
