I can't take credit for the recipe as it is my sister Aimee's. Her daughter Jenn was visiting my son Scott and his wife Erin. They all made this one evening and it became a hit in that household. This fall when we visited Scott and Erin for Erin's baby shower Scott made the lasagna recipe. It is soooo good and not very complicated.
You use no boil lasagna noodles, either hot or sweet Italian sausage. Chopped fresh basil mixed in a large container of ricotta along with oregano, salt, pepper, egg, mozzarella and parmesan cheese.
For the sauce cook one onion chopped and three cloves of garlic and a pinch of hot pepper flakes with the sausage. When browned add chopped tomatoes, stewed tomatoes and more mozzarella and parmesan cheese as you build the layers of sauce, noodles, cheese filling and grated cheeses in a glass 9 x13 pan. Bake for 40 minutes in a 350 degree F oven covered. The last 20 minutes remove the cover and bake until golden and the sauce is bubbling and cheeses are melted. Serves and army. I am not kidding.
Toasted garlic bread, a nice green salad and you've got dinner.
I'd give you Aimee's email so you can thank her, but she would not be happy with me. You know her...my sister that doesn't like to be called Baby Aimee. I don't ever call her that you know....
