Lasagna With Black Olive Tapanade

Nothing better than a big piece of hot lasagna. The smell and sound of the bubbling cheese when it comes out of the oven. And then to top it all off the crunchy edges that everybody fights about!

The black olive tapenade layers in this lasagne really give it more depth of flavor and combines perfectly with the tartiness from the tomatoes.

This recipe could easily be made vegetarian by substituting the meat for zucchini, eggplant or some extra carrot and celery. To be hones this lasagne is at it's best when eaten the next day when all the flavors have had time to infuse and intensify.
