I have made many lasagnas, and this is by far and away the world's best! I think the three things that make it so much better than all the other lasagnas I've made are: 1. The sauce is outstanding and authentic, 2. The fennel seed is a superb ingredient, and 3. The slices of mozzarella (as opposed to grated) help the layers keep their shape and not turn into a big sloppy mess. I also love that this fits perfectly into my 9x13 pan. I made it exactly as written, except I used the trick for soaking the noodles in hot water for 30 minutes instead of boiling them. Also, just an fyi... there is exactly twice as much sauce as is needed for one lasagna... just barely, though! If you want to make two lasagnas, you will not need to double the sauce, but just be careful to measure the 1.5 cups per layer conservatively and not use more than is needed. Outstanding, and a new family classic. Will make many, many more times.
