Hello PamK, Thanks for sharing! We're glad you like the recipe!

This is just exact to the recipe I have used for years. (sometimes I cheat, and have used a jar sauce, but add a can of diced tomatoes) My family loves it, and it is a requested dish from all of them. I even had a handyman fixing my front door request it as payment for his services! LOL (friend of my son-in-law, and heard about the Lasagna I make.) A little extra Mozz on top never hurt!
