Awesome Lasagna (No-Boil, Easy)

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by jaynine

This is a really good basic lasagna recipe. It's based on one I found somewhere, but I've tweaked it quite a bit to suit my own tastes. I like it as written with italian sausage, but you can substitute ground beef if you must.

I made this a few days ago and it is now sitting in my freezer waiting to go to a family dinner next week. Even though I haven't yet tasted it I know from looking at and smelling it that it is going to be delicious. For the tomato sauce I used recipe number 8581 (Delicious Tomato Sauce) but did not add the meatballs. With the price of meat and cheese now, next time I make it I will decrease the amount of meat to three-quarters of a pound as I think it does not need one and a quarter pound.
