This has been a staple recipe of mine for years. Guests absolutely love it! I use Classico spaghetti sauce - spinach/cheese or blend with spicy red pepper for a little more kick. Keep in mind that you will need to add about 1 1/2 cups of sauce if you use Classico. Classico jars are only 26 oz and the 30 oz that the recipe calls for is perfect to make make sure the lasagna noodles get covered all the way. If the noodles are not completely covered by the sauce, they won't cook well.
This recipe was a great starting point. I omitted the mushrooms and made several changes: 1) used 1 lb ground sausage, 2) used 3 garlic cloves, 3) used one cup wine instead of water/tomato juice, 4) doubled the basil and, 5) added garlic powder to ricotta mixture. Absolutely delicious, will probably become my standard lasagna recipe. Thanks!
One of my staple recipes! It's better (and easier!) than regular boiled-noodle lasagna (firmer and less runny). A great recipe!
DELISH times 2!
