“This recipe was developed for my two brothers. Both of them love their lasagna with lots of meat. After many episodes of trial and error, I was finally able to satisfy them. Feel free to add spinach to the mix, they both hate the stuff, so it was never used in the recipe I developed. This one is for you bro's (the secret is out)!”
