Best lasagna ever! My family loves it ??
So a couple of things. 1. My family LOVES the meat sauce you make here so much, we use it like a marinara ALL THE TIME. 2. I have made this a couple times the only change is I use less cottage cheese. Example...total of ricotta and cottage cheese is about 4 cups so I do 2 of each...a better balance for us.
I spent two years in the Toscana region of Italy. The Italian snobs in here have no CLUE that this is actually BETTER than any lasagna to be found in Firenze (Florence), Bologna, or Milano (Milan). Cottage cheese? My first thought was ARE YOU KIDDING ME? But after trying it, I will concur that it is BETTER than ricotta alone. SALUD!
I finally got to make this recipe to the t and it is amazing! My little girl who doesn’t eat any kind of combined foods loves it and asked me to make some again tonight. Thank you for sharing this awesome recipe!
Best ever !
I've made this recipe for years and it has always been a big hit. This recipe screams traditional, american lasagna in the very best way. It's very difficult to mess this one up as I have not always had every ingredient it calls for on hand (provolone, sausage, ricotta, etc). I love seeing how everyone has put their own spin on it and it still comes out beautifully.
I don't care if this is traditional Italian lasagna or not. What is important to me is that it tastes good. This looks like my long lost recipe for lasagna that I made in the 70's. I got it off a box of pasta. I am so glad to have found it again. I can't wait to make it.
I dont think this is traditional. I'm Italian. We never use cottage cheese in lasagna. Only ricotta.
