After trying several different recipes for lasagna, and combining the best of the best, I think I found the best combination yet. I will admit that this is not for the faint of heart; this is a very hearty dish. *At the suggestion of a fellow Zaarian, use regular lasagna noodles (not the no boil type).

Caregiver's delight. Easy enough to do quickly and makes terrific leftovers. I make it all the time (about every six months). Never fails to please.

Oh my yummy goodness! I made this recipe to share with my son and my cousins family of seven after church one afternoon. There were a total of nine people eating and everyone had seconds. The compliments continued to flood the conversation. My cousin's wife requested the recipe after their youngest child, who is a picky eater asked if there was more. I had made other lasagna recipe's before and since then, but none of them have been as good as this recipe.
