This is yummy. I'm not a 'cook' - I generally have to follow recipes to the letter. I had to take a leap of faith that when the recipe called for Italian Sausage, that it meant GROUND sausage, but I don't know for sure! I couldn't believe that Safeway didn't have fennel seeds. I wanted to try it as that seems to be the 'secret' ingredient - but no luck. Also, I mis-read the recipe several times. I'm nota great cook, but usually not that bad. I put in only 1 can of tomato paste and tomato sauce, which explains why I was barely making it for 2 layers of meat sauce. Plus, lasagna recipes never seem to tell you how many layers. 'repeat layers' - what does that mean to a layperson? The recipe only referenced 3 cups of meat sauce - was there supposed to be more? I guess maybe it's supposed to be 3 layers because the recipe says to use 1/3 of the mozza. Anyways, the point is, because I'm a recipe moron, I found that this recipe could have been a little more clear HOWEVER, lasagna is obviously very forgiving because I got only 2 layers, and was missing some ingredients, and got the layers in the wrong order, and a borderline burned the top layer of cheese and it is still DELICIOUS. I have actually made lasagna before, believe it or not, and don't think this one is any more work than any other lasagna - and I think it's the sausage that makes the difference, although I might try fennel if I ever find it.
