      This was excellent! I made with the 1/2 sweet and 1/2 spicy italian sausage as listed, but it was turkey sausage and I used baby spinach in place of the arugula, but all the rest the same-so really no changes. I agree with Liza, I was glad it made two. Homemade lasagna takes a little while, so I love to freeze leftover lasagna!

      Whooowhee, this was damn good! The arugula pesto sets this lasagna apart from the rest as I'm not a big fan of your typical meat and cheese lasagna. This is a salty, creamy, herby pan of goodness. And the fact that it makes two lasagnas is glorious. Made both tonight - served one to the boys watching the game and the other is going with my on my girls' weekend. My new go-to meat lasagna for good. Thanks Dria!
