    Galley Wench's Note:

    I've been making lasagna for years and have been asked many times for the recipe. Unfortunately there isn't one, I'm one of those cooks who uses the basic recipe and then embellishes. But just for my friend Vicki down in Mexico, I'm attempting to put it in writing. Because many of these ingredients are not readily available in Mexico, I've added some suggested substitutions.

      I substituted the ricotta with strained cottage cheese and finally succeeded in making a lasagna as good as my mom's. It's a great, flavorful recipe even though I only put in half of the Italian sausage (I ran out). And I liked that the steak sauce brought out the meat without making the dish taste like steak sauce!

      This is a lot like the way I've been making my lasagna for years too. The steak seasoning though was a nice twist.
