I came up with this recipe on my own after taking the best from several others I'd tried. The last time I made this for a party, everyone went crazy for it. I received two of the best compliments I’ve ever received for my cooking. One person told me it was the best lasagna he’d tasted in his life. The other person, an Italian woman, told me this was better than her mother’s recipe. On that note, here is the recipe which I prefer to make vegetarian but with the meat variation mentioned at the bottom. Please note that I use ingredients and quantities "by feeling" for this recipe but I've done my best to give you exact measurements. Feel free to contact me with questions.
