Wow, this is fabulous. Couple pieces of advice, though. Firstly, just use regular sausage. I don't understand why you'd want to use link sausage in a lasagna recipe. Secondly, DO NOT try to fit all of this into a 9x13 pan. Go out and buy yourself a bigger pan - you'll be very thankful you did. I followed the advice of others and made more sauce, which I did the day before in the crockpot so that I wouldn't have to babysit it. I also assembled the lasagna early in the day and popped it in the oven right before my party. This makes enough to feed a small army. Enjoy!
I did not care for this recipe.
overall, very tasty. but the sauce didn't yield a whole heck of a lot, so i would have to double the next time. i did add a bit of red wine to the sauce as it simmered (and i probably wouldn't let it simmer as long- it started to scald). but, the sauce was very flavorful, even without the wine, and the lasagna itself was very delicious. my husband and picky 2 year old loved it!
Very good. I used no boil lasagne noodles and made it up a day ahead. I added about a half pound of mushrooms as an extra layer. It took the full 1.5 hours and maybe a little more.
i thought this recipe was great, not to mention the finished product itself.
This Lasagna was great. My family loved it. I would suggest increasing the tomato sauce to another can. I did not have enough ricotta cheese so I used sour cream and it still tasted wonderful. P.S. Don't forget to drain the grease from the bacon or your sauce will be way too greasy..... Love it thanks.
The sauce tasted so good! I added another can of tomates and had more then enough sauce. I didn't even need the extra sauce.
I also used bulk sausage which was perfect, and used a very deep pan. I think I ended up with 6 layers. It feed the army of guests that I had and we even had leftovers for a couple of days. Excellent!!
I knew this would be a great classic lasagna recipe. It turned out to be the perfect Italian lasagna. All my extended family--many of whom are food snobs--raved over it when I served it for a party. After making it twice, I concluded the following changes made it party-perfect: I pre-cooked the pasta, and if I hadn't, I feel it would have been very dry. I also added one small can diced tomatoes to the sauce, as I learned from the first time I made it, it needed more sauce. I didn't particularly like the bacon, and when it was ommitted, it wasn't quite so heavy that way. Follow the rest as is, and you'll have a winner!
