Recipe by Anniepants927
I found this recipe when I was blog jumping! The cook uses satisfying food with the simplest of ingredients. This is THE BEST lasagna I, and my whole family, have ever tasted. We think it might be the addition of hot breakfast sausage! IT IS SO EASY and YUMMY! This will be a staple FOREVER!

This really is a great recipe. I do not recommend no boil noodles, there isn't enough liquid in the recipe to properly soak them. Please give credit where credit is due. The blogger is The Pioneer Woman.
