THE Lasagna

THE Lasagna

This is the lasagna. The lasagna to which all other lasagnas are compared... and found lacking. This is my mother's lasagna. It has ruined me for anything but this recipe; I no longer order lasagna in restaurants, despite liking lasagna, because I know I will be disappointed by the restaurant's poor imitation of my mother's lasagna. I recommend you never try any, lest you be forced to cook your own lasagna from scratch forever after.

You have now assured yourself of a positive place in my will. :-)

Nice job! :-)

and should you ever lose your copy of the recipe, it can be found in the "Better Homes & Gardens New Cook Book", page 259 in my 1981 edition.

The only adaptation I did was to substitute *shredded* mozzarella cheese for the topping instead of the thinly sliced mozzarella cheese , as called for.

Other than that, it is an awesome recipe.

After cooking, you can slice it up into individual sized servings and freeze them for future use. :-)
