Okay guys – this right here is my most treasured recipe, my holy grail recipe…my homemade lasagna. Lasagna is something I have made for many years (some might call it my signature dish), and it really comes down to a simple formula that is easy to customize. If you’re vegetarian, for instance, you could easily omit the meat in this recipe and replace with something thick like mushrooms in the sauce.
When I first started making this recipe (back when I was 14), I always used cottage cheese rather than ricotta. This is acceptable, if it’s all you have or by personal preference, but I have never heard anybody turn down delicious and creamy ricotta cheese – I highly recommend you get the good stuff.
Lasagna can be heavy with all those layers, so try pairing it with something simple like garlic bread or an even lighter salad (balsamic vinaigrette goes well). Check out my beloved recipe after the break and let me know what you think in the comments!
