Jersey girl Lasagna

When I was a single parent and barely knew how to cook, my neighbor's mom (Margaret) that now went to be with the Lord taught me this recipe. Every body in the town loved her lasagna. She worked at a big local deli. She sold a whole pan of lasagna for $80, so you know it had to be good. Today people still rave about her lasagna. I have made a few small changes to personalize it........ proverb:12 v-11 Whoever works his land will have plenty to eat ,but the one who chases unrealistic dreams has no sense.
