    sherrilljoy's Note:

    I got this recipe from my brother-in-law Dan, who got it from the Oregonian newspaper years ago. I've actually given this recipe as a gift! I double the sauce and freeze half for pasta later. Don't be intimidated by the long list of ingredients, it's well worth the effort.

      I'm not sure how to rate this recipe. Does it have great flavor? Yes. Is it nice and moist and lucious? No What would make it better? Precooking the noodles. Granted this was my first time making lasagna without cooking the noodles ahead of time. I have always wondered how you could make lasagna and get the great results I always got with my old time favorite recipe. Well maybe you prefer a firmer lasagna then I do. I love the taste. Do I give it ratings on the name or the product? If I rate it on the name, it would get 0 stars. If I rate it on the flavor it gets 5 stars. If I rate it overall...well I think it will have to be 3 stars. I highly recommend that you cook the noodles to the ala dente' style prior to layering into the pan. Then you should indeed get a 'great' lasagna. Made for PAC Spring 2013.
