No joke, this IS the world's best lasagna! Had some family over for lunch, they ended up staying for dinner as well, so I decided on a whim to throw this together and it was AWESOME!!! The sauce is fantastic... Glad I made extra to freeze! Used the no boil noodles for the first time and they worked out great! So much easier to spread the ricotta onto the hard noodles...no tearing, no sticking, etc. Had to bake longer (according to pkg directions 50-60mins) but I just cut down the sauce simmering time to compensate. Also added some chopped portabellas cause we like mushrooms. UPDATE: Several years later and I am about to make this lasagna for the eleventy-millionth time; love, love, LOVE this recipe, and just wanted to add a THANK YOU to John Chandler- You've made me look like a lasagna pro SO MANY times (except the time I accidentally skipped a layer and it was a shorty, but that was totally me being a ding-dong and obviously NOT the recipe!). I'm making it now to take to a friend who just had a baby and this is my #1 GO TO for just such occasions, I've made it for Christmas, when my Mom had surgery, ANY excuse =) THANK YOU!!! Another reason to love this is it's something you can make when having people over, make ahead, pop it in the oven when they arrive and actually have time to visit with your guests rather than be distracted and cooking. Possibly, probably, one of my favorite recipes EVER... OK... I'll stop gushing now... =)
