Story

I know everyone thinks theirs is the ultimate lasagna recipe, but with twice the meat and cheese filling as most recipes, this lasagna really is the ultimate! Once your sauce is made, and your lasagna noodles are cooked, putting this famous Italian-American casserole together really isn't too hard. This is a perfect choice for feeding large groups. Makes 12 servings of Lasagna
