This is the recipe my mom's lasagna recipe and it is always a hit. I like to try different variations but always come back to this old standby.

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.
