Traditional Lasagna

Who doesn't love a good old traditional home made lasagna?! I've always found them to be somewhat time consuming or overwhelming to make, but not any more! Please feel free to visit my review of Olivieri Whole Grain Lasagna Sheets over at Multi-Testing Mommy!

Family Thoughts

I have relatively picky eaters in my family, hubby included! This dish didn't go over so well with the children, even though the last time we ate lasagna, they both couldn't get enough, however that was a year ago! A lot can change.

For my husband, he couldn't get enough of this delicious dish and neither could I. I thought we would be able to freeze some, but we ended up eating it for left overs twice!


  1. I looooove lasagna and make it often. I also make a white chicken one that is so good, I will share the recipe soon.

  2. Using ground Italian sausage instead of ground beef adds a lot of flavor as well.

  3. Yes Anon - you are right, it definitely does.

  4. I love lasagna but hate it when I order it at a restaurant and it is horrible. This one looks amazing! I'm going to try it.

  5. Love lasagna. I have never made it with ricotta cheese so I will have to try it out

  6. Lasagne is such a crowd pleaser! I love that it can be dressed up with whatever additional ingredients you like. I like adding roasted eggplant but I imagine kids wouldn't be happy with that!

  7. I adore Lasagna, this sounds like a nice one. I always add mushrooms to mine as I love them too :-)
