    herblady28's Note:

    I call this the 10 lb. lasagna because the ingredients total about 10 lbs. I have been practicing my lasagna recipe for years and this is what I have finally come up with. Note: This lasagna can be made the day before and baked the next day. Or you can make this lasagna and freeze to bake at a later time. (If you freeze, please remember to allow extra baking time.)

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Tomato Sauce:.
    2. 2
      Heat a deep-sided skillet or stock pot and add about 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Add sausage and cook until just browned (3-4 minutes). Remove the meat from the skillet or pot and set aside. Adding at least another teaspoon of olive oil to the skillet or pot, sauté the 1 large diced onion and fresh minced or chopped garlic for a few minutes. Add the canned chopped tomatoes and tomato sauce to the skillet. Add browned Sausage to Tomatoes. Let tomato sauce come to a slight bubbling and turn heat down to simmer. Add at least 1 teaspoon (or more to taste) each of Italian seasoning, basil and sugar to the tomato sauce. Add several dashes of red or white wine for flavoring. Allow tomato sauce to simmer on medium to low heat, stirring occasionally, until tomato sauce is cooked down to about half the amount (about 30-45 minutes).
    3. 3
      Ricotta Cheese Mixture:.
    4. 4
      In a separate bowl mix together, ricotta cheese, 8 ounces mozzarella cheese, 1 cup parmesan cheese, 1 pkg. cream cheese, 1 med-large minced onion, 1 teaspoon basil. Set aside until ready to use.
    5. 5
      Layering:.
    6. 6
      Using a large deep-sided baking dish or lasagna pan, layer 1/3 tomato sauce, lasagna noodles, ½ ricotta cheese mixture, continue layering until you have ended with tomato sauce.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle remaining mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese on the top. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees until heated thoroughly and bubbling about 1 hour and 45 minutes. Take foil off and bake for another 15 minutes allowing cheese to lightly brown around the edges.

      It's a great recipe. I use 1/2 cup of chopped green onion tops included, In place of the onion. I used 1/2 cup of green pepper chopped fine. I use the above Ingredients In my Lasagna recipe. The test is out of this world. T Woytus Berwyn. IL

      Holy smokes, you weren't kidding about 10 lbs!! I used 1 lb. of hot italian sausage, 1 lb. of lean ground beef (which I drained well to cut some of the fat). I used 5 garlic cloves, light ricotta and cream cheese, and about 4 tb. of light parmesan (I didn't have fresh, so I used the shaker-style stuff). Herblady28 specified cooked lasagna noodles for a reason...I used oven-ready and they expanded!! If I hadn't placed a baking sheet under the lasagna pan, the sauce would have spilled over onto the bottom of the oven. I otherwise followed the recipe to a tee. My picky kids really liked it and I have to say, this is by far the best lasagna I've ever had. 10 stars!!!
