Jo Mama's World Famous Lasagna

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Sharlene~W

Wondering what to do with leftover sauce when you make Jo Mama's World Famous Spaghetti? Here is the perfect answer. Don't skimp on the sauce--this is best when you use 6-7 cups of sauce. Prep time assumes you have already made sauce. I like to make this up in 2 smaller casseroles so I can serve my family one and freeze the 2nd one for later.

The lasagna was very good, the only thing that I changed was I used ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese. The sauce really does make this an excellent lasagna. By the way with the sauce I used 1 lb. hot sausage and 1 lb. sweet sausage an no red pepper, Delicious.
