The unapproved lazagne

I said lasagne for dinners. Boys were expecting. But when I put the hot baking pan on table. Leo was hugely disappointed. He refused to eat because it did not look like daddy's one with tomato. He showed me the package with picture and insisted "it is not."

For me, it was a bad looking good tasting pasta bake.
