Slow-Cooked Lasagna with Homemade Sauce Recipe

Publisher Photo
This recipe was given to me by a friend who made it using a store-bought marinara sauce. I created a homemade sauce and it has been a big hit whenever I serve it, especially at potlucks and bring a dish gatherings. —Sheri Oganowski, Dayton, Ohio
