This is a wonderful recipe, full of authenticity and flavor! As I type this, we are enjoying the fruits of labor that were necessary to prepare this lasagna.
It is indeed a hearty dish, and can easily feed a dozen. Paired with a small salad, a good wine and bread of your choice, a fine meal! You will likely want a bread, as there is plenty of sauce worth sopping.
I changed nothing about the recipe, but like the others, was hesitant to add a tablespoon of salt. My husband tends to lay on the shaker, so he was not very convincing. I added half, only to add the remaining half while the sauce was still cooking.
Though it does have a sweet taste, it is nothing I could call 'too sweet'. For those who dislike a sweet tomato sauce, you might edit the amount of sugar this recipe calls for.
Using quality ingredients goes far with this dish. While it can certainly be cooked with less expensive brands, I say if you are going to go to this much trouble, use the good stuff. The search for a good ricotta is worth it! For those who cringe at the thought, a 16 ounce container is not as intimidating as it seems.
Be certain your baking dish is a true 9 x 13, as you will definitely need the room. When baked in a glass casserole, this is a weighty thing to move in and out of the oven. Be careful.
This is a delicious lasagna, and I will definitely make it again. MMM!
