This is my Mom's recipe. When she gave it to me I was shocked that it wasn't more complex. It's what I asked for on every birthday! It is very cheesy!

Your Mama and my mama must be about the same age. This is the same that we had when we were little. I asked my mom and she said it was the same. She made it with Ragu sauce and to this day, Ragu is my favorite. Thank you for posting this recipe. I served to my in-laws and they said they loved good lasagna. Very simple and very good.
