If I could give this recipe 10 stars I would. I was VERY skeptical about only having one layer of ricotta - and boy was I suprised! This was by far the best lasagna I have ever eaten. I used a combo of ground beef/ground pork since veal is impossible to find (and I live in Iowa LOL!). I also used a homemade zucchini/marinara sauce based on Whole Wheat Spaghetti With Zucchini Sauce . This is now the ONLY lasagna I will ever make - Thank you so much for sharing !(and my family thanks you too!)
This is a great lasagna recipe. I have been making lasagna for years, and I found this method interesting. The combination of the veal and ground beef really makes the recipe. I followed the instructions exactly as written, and I used my own homemade marinara sauce. Thanks for sharing, Meanie. --Marla
Two thumbs up from all my guests! I used probably twice as much sauce as called for and I think I would incorporate the meat into the sauce next time. Didn't have romano for the top so I doubled the freshly grated parmesan. Excellent recipe- thanks Mean.
To quote my very Italian mother: "this by far the best lasagna I have ever had." And she is correct. This was my first time not layering the ricotta mixture multiple times (pasta, ricotta, sauce, repeat) and I was a bit nervous. Silly me. The two-meat mixture is delicious, the mozzarella and fontina layers add a great tangy cheesiness, and the ricotta mixture is very creamy and wonderfully seasoned. By far the most flavorful and delicious lasagna I have had the pleasure of making. Thank you.
AWESOME!! This is a rich and delicious dish that my whole family enjoyed. I added fresh baby spinach leaves to one of my layers(just as a trick to get them to eat veggies)but I made the rest exactly as written. This is a winner that I will make again. Thanks for a superb, well written recipe!
