This is so flavorful, cheesy and can build arm muscle by just lifting it! I'm famous for this lasagna and it's always a requested meal with company.

I did not have to make this recipe to give it 5 stars.Because it is so close to my recipe.I think it is the provalone, never seen it in Lasagna.I do not use the ricotta. I use cottage cheese And I great and mix all the cheese together.Since I found Kittencals sauce 150207..this is the only sauce I ever use now.It does not have that acid taste. "yes" Kades Mom we make the best Lasagna LOL.

This has replaced my other favorite lasagna recipe! I use whole box of noodles and omit pork (personal pref). FABULOUS! Family wants me to make it weekly! Thank you!

This was amazingly good! The provolone slices add a unique texture and taste. It is not overly saucy and slices up beautifully. I did use only 1 lb. of both the ground chuck and Italian pork sausage. Thank you KadesMom!
