My kids like to call this Italian Crescent Casserole their “crescent lasagna”.  It has almost the same ingredients I put into my lasagna, except no noodles. This is super easy to throw together and the best part is, you probably have all these ingredients on hand! It’s not very time consuming to put together and a definite change from the usual spaghetti or lasagna. Give this a try! The best part is, if you don’t care for one or all of the cheeses, mix and match them to your liking! 🙂
