Very Good! Easy! I made ahead of time and put in the refridgerator. It came out so yummy! I even forgot to put in the provolone. I'll bet it even taste better if that is possible.
This recipe is extremely good and rich in flavor. My oldest, who is a great fan of lasagna tried to eat the entire pan. This is definately a winner. Thanx for posting.
Made this tonight for dinner and got rave reviews all around. We're not usually fussy about lasagna but everyone agreed that this was the best lasagna any of us had tasted in a long time. Followed the directions exactly. Great recipe. Thanks!
