    Nurbel's Note:

    Like my father's rib recipe which I've also posted, this is a recipe which some old buddies of mine recently requested that I post. Back when we all were a little younger, the guys used to come over everytime my Dad made his lasagne. Maybe it was the free meal or maybe it was just that good but this recipe is the reason why lasagna has always been one of my favorite foods. I know that you can substitute ground beef for the sausage (or use both combined) with equal success. I've posted this as 6-10 servings but I know from experience that 4 big guys can polish this off and still ask for more.

      Made this and it was great! I used 2 cans of fire roasted diced tomatoes, and as simmering the sauce added 2 full can of water, as I never cook my noodles anymore! I also put a ladle of sauce, then start with the noodles to keep the noodles from sticking to the pan. I also used fresh basil and parsley instead of the dried. I baked at 350 for about 45 minutes. It was a hit!!

      I've made lasagna a couple of times before this and had issues with it being sloppy, but this turned out super. I made a couple of modifications... For some reason I thought the recipe called for ground beef, so I browned up about a pound. So I used five Italian sausages and about one pound of meat. I also did not have three cups of cottage cheese so I only used two. Anyway - it turned out super good. Probably close to the best lasagna I've ever had. Thanks for posting.
