Clifton Street Lasagna

"When my husband and I were first married, we lived in an apartment on Clifton Street. We got together with some of our neighbors to put this recipe together. Note: I'm not sure if this is clear in the instructions, but you can make this with just the beef, just the shrimp, or some of both."

    A great lasanga recipe that DH and DS wondered if the meat was venison. It had to be the beer as it's a first for me using beer in my lasagna recipes. A few omissions per families request. Mushrooms, onions and the shrimp. I made this a day ahead so the next day all I had to do was pop it in the oven for 1 1/2 hours of baking with the last 1/2 hour uncovered. Made for the ThinkPink event - October.~

    I'm another one who was happy enough to make this without the mushrooms, & I did it with the ground beef! Shared it with a neighbor couple & all thought it a wonderfully flavorful lasagna! Will make this one again, for sure! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend recipe tag]

    This was a very tasty lasagna recipe, that the whole family enjoyed- even the younger members of the family who find my favourite lasagna recipe too rich for them ( but then it is a special occasion one!).<br/>I felt that it could do with a bit more garlic and herb flavour, but that's just my taste..and not for everybody.<br/>Overall, it was very much enjoyed, and the leftovers were even better!!<br/>Made for PRMR.

    ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS !! I did leave out the mushrooms, and used lean ground beef. This had to be a first using beer in lasagna. Thanks for the posting of this. A keeper here. Made for PRMR tag.

    When I tagged this recipe I didn't read the amts of ingredients close enough. I don't really care much for italian seasoning and this has a lot of it. I honestly shouldn't have tagged it knowing my preferences. This is just a personal taste issue. Made for PRMR.
