American Lasagna
January 19, 2003

Ok here's the scoop on any revision you might want to make! I've been making this lasagna for over a year and it is excellent... **You do need more sauce! Just add an extra 14 oz can of crushed or diced tomatoes and increase garlic, onions and other spices by a small amount as well. **2 Tbs of brown sugar is just right. **1&1/2 pound of hamburger is an awful lot, I've decreased it to 1/2 pound and that was plenty for this non-meat loving family! **I use 9x13 cake pan, and 12 lasagna noodles would fill it to overflowing! I've found 9 noodles (3 layers of 3 noodles each) to be enough. **30 minutes is no where near long enough to cook this thing! 20 minutes uncovered just to get it started, then 1 hour loosely covered with foil, then remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes is more like it! This recipe is very forgiving, and judging by all the comments, very flexible as well. Hope my comments help someone one else...
