Sorry Guys but not impressed with this recipe. <br/><br/>Here are the reasons why. - The ricotta and egg when baked turned out more like and omelette compared to a nice creamy sauce. The meat sauce was mediocre and certainly not one I would have made normally, don't quite see the need for the sugar. - After tasting and making enough for six and hoping to use this for a few nights will eat once and that will be it, and thats purely because I didn't buy anything else for dinner. Very Disappointed.
This is an excellent lasagna recipe. The only thing I changed was I used 1 pound of ground beef and a half pound of ground pork instead of all ground beef. The one problem I had was that it started getting a little too done around the edges before the center was cooked. The top was also starting to dry out. Next time I'll cook it at 350 and just bake it a little bit longer. I'll also keep it covered for about the first 20 minutes or so, or at least until the center starts to cook.
