Finally found Denise's lasagna recipe:
to give credit this was orignially posted by stampingdenise in the "WAYMTFD" part 1 thread.
Here's that lasagne recipe I promised.
It's just the recipe for the sauce.... to make the cheese filling I use ricotta cheese, parsley, egg, and parm cheese and mix it together and layer it with the noodles and sauce.
The key is to use good italian sausage and not just ground beef.
It's my MIL's recipe, and she's 100% Italian.
1 lb ground beef
1 lb italian sausage (remove casing)
2 6 oz cans tomato paste
2 15 oz cans tomato sauce
3 15 oz cans of water
2 small cans diced mushrooms
1 1/2 tsp italian seasoning
1 Tbsp parsley
1 tsp basil
1/2 c sherry or wine
2 cloves garlic
Brown ground beef and italian sausage. Add rest of ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes.
Makes enough sauce for a 9 x 13 and an 8x8 pan of lasagna.
