My sister loves my lasagne so much she asked me to make it for her wedding reception! Luckily it was a small wedding! The trick is to caramelize the tomato paste.This gives a " bubbled on the back of the stove all day" flavor!
Brown onion and meat.drain. Add garlic and tomato paste. Cook and stir about 5 mn. till paste has turned a darker shade of red.
Add sauce, diced tomatos, basil marjoam salt and sugar.Simmer till thickener.Add more herbs and spices as needed.
Meanwhile blend ricotta, egg parmesan, and parsley.Boil noodles.
Assemble.like this: layer of sauce , layer or noodles layer or ricotta mixture, layer of mozzarella, layer of sauce.Repeat making sure to end with a layer of sauce. Cover with foil and bake for 1 1/2 hours Remove foil, sprinkle with more parmesan. Let rest for 10 mn. and serve.
