Recipe by duckit

The recipe was in a cook book from the 50's, I have changed it a little. My suggestion is to make it one day and serve it reheated the next, as with many dishes it is better the next day.

Thank you, I was looking for a classic and easy lasagna recipe. I used ricotta instead of cottage, just my preference, but otherwise great!
