Homemade Lasagana

Growing up I usually had stuffed shells for my birthday dinner, sometimes I had lasagna. Since it’s my birthday week, I thought I would share my lasagna recipe with you. Last year I shared my stuffed shell recipe with you for my birthday. Which I am actually making and taking it to Grandma’s for my birthday dinner.

I think my recipe is pretty straight forward. Sometimes I use homemade sauce, sometimes jar sauce and sometimes a mixture of homemade and jar. Whatever works for you, do it. I just suggest if using a jar sauce make sure it is a good sauce. Lasagna can be a little time consuming, but it is a meal that is definitely worth the labor of love. Well at least in my family!! Jimmy and the kids love lasagna. Lele is always begging me to make it again.

Tips

I like to add a lot of meat to lasagna, but you can cut back on it if you want to. I also spray cooking spray on the tin foil, this helps the cheese from sticking to it.
