I have been around awhile and I only work part of the year.
I looked for and tried many different lasagna recipes over the years but after tasting this one, I won't be looking any more. I took the advice of others and change a few things. My family and relatives thought that it was the best lasagna ever. I used hot Italian turkey sausage in lieu of ground beef, 3 cloves of garlic not 2, 1 1/4 tablespoons brown sugar in lieu of 2 tablespoons, 1 additional can of diced tomatoes and added 1 small can of tomato sauce. I put a layer of sauce at the bottom of dish before the first layer of noodles. I used freshly grated Asiago cheese instead of parmesan, fresh parsley in lieu of dried and a dash of red pepper flakes. Last but not least I made it the day before and let it sit in the refrigerator so all of the spices settle in. Because it is cold when you put it in the oven you need to add 15 minutes to the baking time. This all sounds like a lot of work but it is actually pretty easy.
