I do believe this is absolutely the best sauce and of course that's what makes this lasagna just incredible. I used 1.25 pounds of sweet Italian sausage and 1 pound of lean (4%) ground beef. I used 2/3 cup chopped fresh basil. I left out the fennel seeds. I added a dash of ground nutmeg to the ricotta mixture. And, I used grated parmigiano reggiano. Other than that, I followed the recipe as written. I did get confused in the end though - my layers went in this order - 1.5 cups of meat sauce, 6 noodles, 1/2 of the ricotta, 1/3 of the mozzarella, 1.5 cups of meat sauce, 1/3 of the parm, 6 noodles, the last 1/2 of the ricotta, another 1/3 of the mozzarella, 1.5 cups of the meat sauce, another 1/3 of the parm and then I had the last 1/3 of the mozzarella to put on top and I still had the last 1/3 of the parm left and didn't want to put it on top because that would have been 2/3 of the parm on top! So, I think I screwed up somewhere but I can't figure out where. Either way - this recipe IS the world's best lasagna!
