“I got this recipe a few years a go from a taste of homes magazine that was featuring recipes that won awards. I get so tired of the same lasagna over and over again. This is AWESOME, never tasted anything better. This is my most cherished recipe so I thought I should post it. I know yall will just love this. It does make 2 pans full. So half everything if your not serving a crowd. Oh and do this recipe justice and dont leave anything out or sub anything, especially the wine and raisins :)...yum!”
