I've made lasagna MANY times, and I'm a pretty good cook, but this is the BEST lasagna I've ever made, hands down! Perfect texture and taste, none of that runniness some other recipes can leave behind. You don't have to be exact with any of the ingredients, but I would recommend sticking with the suggested amounts of the tomato ingredients and water for good sauce thickness. Definitely do the soaking of the noodles in hot water for 30 min as others have suggested, without the boiling. Not only is this way easier, but it produces perfectly al dente noodles when finished, none of the soggy stuff. Oh, and add only a little of the sugar and salt at a time, about 1/2 teaspoon, and taste. I ended up using about 1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar, but WAY WAY less than the listed 1 tablespoon of salt, probably only 1 teaspoon at most. Remember that you can always add more but it's almost impossible to reverse saltiness without diluting the whole thing, which can ruin a dish. I'm craving this now as I write...going to heat up some leftovers, YUM. Thanks so much for the recipe!!
