Share my Recipe Sunday - Joanna with Cheeseburger Lasagna

We are all used to having cheeseburgers on the grill and with Memorial Day being tomorrow I am sure many of us will be eating them soon!
Joanna from Princess on the Farm has a recipe with a different twist for the cheeseburger. It is lasagna made like a cheeseburger that you even serve with lettuce and tomato at the end. I just thought it sounded good.
This weeks Gem of the Week award is for you Joanna!
