I was making lasagna one night and when I went to get my ground beef, it was bad. I could have made something else but I was really in the mood for it, so I grabbed a pound of Jimmy Dean Maple Sausage and subsituted it for the Ground Beef.

What a wonderful idea it was, it came out sooooo good. Hope you enjoy it. As always if you try one of my recipes, leave a comment, I would love to know how you liked it.
