    Loves2Teach's Note:

    This is one of those simple clasics that everyone loves. I usually serve it with a garden salad, and french bread. This also freezes beautifully! I have made two pans, one for now, and one for later. Enjoy! From

      This Lasagna recipe can be modified to suit individual preferences. I have also made it using Italian sausage instead of beef, and I have added a can of chopped tomatoes to the sauce mixture with good results. Sometimes I mix in shredded parmesan cheese to the ricotta for an extra boost :).

      I have to rate this since this is exactly how my italian grandmother taught me how to make lasagna (the only exception was that we used 2 28oz cans of crushed tomatoes instead of jars of sauce). My hubby prefers this with beef, I prefer it with sausage, so I usually combine the two. I also add the parm to the ricotta mixture (just helps to save a step!) I always try to make an extra to put in the freezer, there are many requests for this lasagna. Thanks for posting!!

      Yummy. I added green peppers, fresh basil, and other spices. I prefer a bit more ricotta, but this recipe is a great template to begin with.
