Pesto Lasagna

(Hallelujah!  Violet just went down for a nap this morning!  She has been taking only her afternoon nap for about two weeks now, so this is a rare gift.)

I tried another recipe from Enchanted Broccoli Forest and was met with success!  Annie, my SIL, also has the book, and recommended the Pesto Lasagna to me.  We love lasagna around here, but have been  making our same old lasagna a little too often lately.  It is delicious, but we were ready to try something new.  

This lasagna is a white lasagna (meaning no tomato sauce).  The filling is made up of lots of ricotta cheese, spinach, onions, zucchini, tons of pesto, and sunflower seeds.  You just alternate layers of noodles and filling and then top with mozzarella cheese.  Behold:

Also, on an unrelated note, this little goofball can find her nose when you ask now:
