A family friend made this lasagna for my sister's wedding as her "gift." Her parents owned an Italian deli and each pan was made with extra love and care. Our family and the 50 invited guests were in "awe" of the amazing flavors. Each ingredient complimented the next adding up to the most magnificent meal! This has now been in our family for 35 years. Red wine, a tossed salad and bread always transports me to that wonderful summer afternoon wedding at our parents home where we dined and celebrated in grand style!
