I love this lasagna recipe because it never fails me, even though I'm a rookie cook! This is so easy to make and it makes tons so I always freeze half and eat it for a month! If you want to make a small pan, divide the recipe in half and it'll still turn out great! *Edited to add: This can be made without the eggs! The cheese mixture will still be delicious without the egg.

I never boil my noodles I just layer noodles, meat sauce, cheeses, then back to noodles until you reach the top then I put a little sauce and cheese on the top cover and bake and noodles bake in sauce and come out tender. I only boiled noodles once and burned my fingers so I tried this way and it works great:)

This was really good! I cooked the whole package of noodles, so had lots left over so made 4 layers of noodles. I put some sauce on the bottom of pan, then added the first layer of noodles (which differed from the instructions). I also used 1 lb ground beef and one pound of italian sausage. I also browned the meat with onion and half a bell pepper, but I usually do that when I brown ground beef. This was awesome! My family definately said its a keeper! I only used about half the cheese as instructed to top it with though. This definately is a great recipe for lasagna. Will make again! Thank you so much for sharing it!
