I've served this satisfying lasagna for years - when our children were small, they preferred it more than a steak dinner! Now my grandchildren request that I bring a pan along when I visit...and, of course, I do. -Barbara McIntosh, Midland, Texas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 11, 2014

"I first made this delicious lasagna for New Year's Day 2010 when we had a houseful of family & friends over to celebrate & I wanted to prepare the meal ahead of time. This was one of the two types of lasagna I made--the other being the TOH recipe from the same issue for Traditional Lasagna. Both were very popular! But, this one has become a recipe that is often requested for birthdays & Christmas Eve at our house. The only change I make is to use 8 oz. of pepperoni rather than 3 1/2. Our family loves Italian food, as you can tell by our Italian surname. Easy to fix, stores well in the refrigerator until baking time. Increase baking time by 10 minutes if you refrigerate it."

"delicious recipe. Adding pizza toppings would be a good option. Also, instead of starting with the meat mixture on the bottom, I started with the lasagna noodles to hold it together better while cutting. I also did 3 noodles per layer, 3 layers. 4 noodles will not fit in the pan..."

"Update: I had baked these in two 8X8" dishes and frozen one, and I am wondering if I inadvertently left out the eggs, which would account for why there was so much liquid! Will try again!"
