I hadn't made lasagna from scratch since 8th grade, Home Economics class, at least 30 yrs ago, so I was ready for a challenge. But alas, one did not exist!! I used my leftover speghetti sauce, which I make from scratch, well semi homemade, canned stewed tomatoes, canned tomato sauce, ground beef/italian sausage (when I have the sausage on hand), italian flavorings, fresh garlic, etc....But I didn't have enough, so I just added more plain tomato sauce, water (not much, I like my sauce kinda thick)and flavorings and heated throughly.

(I thought, well it may be more expensive for me to make it, but at least its FRESH and Homemade!!!) For those of you who may be thinking, $18.00 DOLLARS, thats a sale?, well when u live in Hawaii, we pay double for almost everything, and sometimes more than that. Too bad our pay isn't doubled, huh! SO yep, thats a sale. SUFFICE it to say, my family loved it, AS IS!! BTW, I bought regular l
