Wonderful 'from scratch' lasagna. The sauce is very flavorful. My Italian fioncee loved it and it was a huge hit for a party I made it for. It even freezes well.
This recipe takes a little more time to prepare, but it is well worth it!!!! My family LOVED it.....!!! I used the "no cook" lasagna for this, and I think the cottage cheese and the colby che...
This is an excellent recipe. It makes quite a bit, so you can freeze it for those days that you don't feel like cooking!!
Great taste but low rating because of the cost of the ingredients.
