Spinach Pesto Lasagna

This recipe really intrigued me because it uses wonton wrappers instead of lasagna noodles. The flavors were excellent. The texture of the wonton wrappers was not. I'm not giving this any type of rating today simply because it didn't turn out for us. I'm going to try it again with lasagna noodles and go from there!
