Northern Italian Lasagna is usually a bit different than the Sicilian Lasagna we are accustomed too. No Ricotta cheese in this Lasagna. White sauce is used in place of it, with plenty of Mozzarella. This is one of my families all time favorite dishes.I have tweaked,and made this recipe my own through the years. Make this Lasagna with My Homemade Spinach Lasagna Noodles,and Northern Italian meat sauce,and you will have an Upscale Restaurant dish that is truly amazingly, Divinely delicious!!!!!
