I love this recipe. I thought the sauce, being almost more meat than sauce, would leave me missing something, but I was WRONG. I make it for one of my best buddies whose favorite food is lasagna and he LOVES it. I add a little more garlic and just a dash of crushed red pepper for a little heat.

I'm not much of a cook, but this lasagna was easy to make...sooo delicious! I added mushrooms to the recipe.
