Recipe by Chef Jeff S

This one is ALL Arlines, my wifey. Tried and true, this one always satisfies. She's been making this long before I came around (McCalls 1973) and WE been around the block a few times. Hope you enjoy this as much as our family and friends have over the years.

I've never had lasagna with meatballs, so this was new to me! I liked it more the next day, after all the flavors blended (like all pasta dishes to me!). It didn't really take that much time to put together...the lasagna is cooking while the sauce simmers and you are assembling the cheeses. Made for Spring PAC 2010!
