“This is our family's favorite recipe for lasagna. It is a hearty dish and does not have ricotta cheese in the recipe and features lots of yummy mozzarella. I use Italian Seasoning for the Italian Seasoning in this recipe. We serve it with salad topped with TSR Version of Olive Garden Italian Salad Dressingby Todd Wilbur and garlic bread.”
