OMG! This lasagna is amazing, I change the milk for Kefir, and it's creamy it's rich it's flavorful! I LOVE it! And went a little cheesier for those who L-O-V-Cheese I sprinkle skim milk 1% fat mozzarella in between layers and on the top not much really may be used 1/2 cup total!
Fabulous! I love to find non-traditional lasagna recipes, and this one caught my eye. I made this just as written but only used 1 1/2 lbs of veal stew meat and I cut it into a very small dice.... maybe 1/2". I may seem too liquidy, but trust me, after baking it gets a perfectly moist, thick consistancy. This recipe is a keeper for sure! I'd love to try it with lamb! Thanx for posting.
