Laurel's Lasagna

Laurel's Lasagna

MARBALET

When we moved to Georgia in 1973, our real estate agent, Laurel, worked hard trying to get our family into a house that was owned by a builder. We received a great price on it because the builder was bitter from a recent divorce.(He realized that she would be awarded half of the profit!) My parents got the house for a song. Laurel made this recipe for our family when the deal was closed. I make it for baby showers, church functions, and funerals. Everyone loves this recipe! Makes 2 pans of lasagna and freezes very well.

Wonderful 'from scratch' lasagna. The sauce is very flavorful. My Italian fioncee loved it and it was a huge hit for a party I made it for. It even freezes well.

This recipe takes a little more time to prepare, but it is well worth it!!!! My family LOVED it.....!!! I used the "no cook" lasagna for this, and I think the cottage cheese and the colby cheeses make a big difference!!!! I also substituted smoked turkey sausage for the ground pork and it was GREAT -- and cuts the fat a little!!!!! It definately freezes well and will be a "keeper" at our house!!!! Thank you Laurel and Holly!!!!

This is an excellent recipe. It makes quite a bit, so you can freeze it for those days that you don't feel like cooking!!
