My family & friends like any form of Lasagna I make. I never make it the same twice. I just use what I have. This one was well received by all.

  • 1Prepare sauce and simmer for 1 hour.

    Add tomatoes, sauce, paste and water. Stir to combine. Add the seasonings, stir. Bring to a boil then cover and simmer for 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours. Stirring occasionally.
  • 2Have noodles prepared and rinsed with cold water.

    Preheat oven to 374 degree F.

    In a 9 x 13 baking dish. Spread 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 cups meat sauce, evenly.

    Lay 5 - 6 noodles lengthwise over sauce and spread 1/3 ricotta cheese mixture over noodles. Spread provolone cheese slices, 1/4 cup Parmesan evenly over that. More sauce, noodles, 1/3 ricotta mixture using mozzarella slices and 1/4 cup Parmesan on this layer. Repeat until noodles, sauce and ricotta cheese are used. End with sauce, reserved 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella and remaining Parm.
