“Easy, tasty, basic lasagna recipe. I have been making this for years with slight variations to the recipe depending on what I have on hand, and on how much time I want to spend. Sometimes I add browned ground beef or Italian sausage to the sauce. Sometimes I use ricotta cheese instead of cottage. My husband, who loves Italian food, finds this to be his favorite lasagne. Passive cooking time includes boiling the noodles, baking the lasagne and letting it stand.”
