Mom's Lasagna

Sara Andrea


This was my mom's recipe. It's one of the first meals I learned to cook. I made this recipe for my best friend and now it's a family favorite for her family. It's one of the first meals my daughter learned to cook and she picked this recipe as the first recipe to cook together with her boyfriend. It's comfort food and is prepared with much love. So many memories with this recipe. I hope this recipe will make many families as happy as it's made mine.
