In 1975, my husband was in the Navy and got orders for shore duty in Fallon, NV. Not long after we moved we were invited to dinner with another Navy couple. As we walked into their house, we were hit with a delicious aroma of onions, meat and tomato sauce. She was making lasagna but it was unlike any we had ever eaten. It was wonderful and when I asked for her recipe, she was pleased to share it. Over the last 39 years, I've tweaked the recipe until it's now my own.
