Pretty decent recipe. My husband and daughter who are both meat lovers, really loved this recipe.
Sauce is robust and holds up well in the lasagna...no runny water.
Makes a lot of sauce...my family loves sauce...others could probably save half the sauce.
Makes a lot...very filling. I have a family of 4 and it will be good for 3 dinners.
In my opinion, sauce is too thick...I'd use less tomato paste
Ricotta cheese mixture is very thin...I don't like a lot of Ricotta cheese in it, so I was fine with it.
Changes I made:
Added some nutmeg to the Ricotta mixture
Layered with 4 noodles instead of 6 and made 3 layers...added sauce on top of the last layer and some cheese.
Used only a dash of salt...not the 1 tbsp it called for
Used tomato puree instead of tomato sauce as that's what I had (maybe it's why my sauce was so thick?)
Used garlic powder, basil, parsley, sage, thyme, pepper and red pepper flakes instead of Italian seasoning.
Overall...worth the time and effort as it will feed a lot of people.
