I don't make it very often because I throw too much into it. First I make a red sauce with meat, hamburger. That takes at least 2 hours of simmering. That's not bad though.

Don't make it often because of all the cheese I throw at it. Each layer gets dotted with Ricotta, mozzarella, and parmesan. Spent about 10 bucks on just the cheese. (I rarely buy cheap cheese)

It's basically a baked cheese melt with red sauce and noodles.

It's YUMMIE! drooling

We're having great weather so I'm also grilling a bunch of chicken thighs and pork steaks to put in the freezer. When the weather is cold and nasty I'll be able to pull out a smoky memory of grilling in nice sunny weather.

Heh, if you only spent $10 on that cheese... you bought cheap cheese.

Hell, good parm is easily $10


Regardless though, sounds yum!

The cheese cost is what stops us from having it more often.

I requested my wife's lasagna for my last birthday meal. Damnit, now I want some.

Damn, now I want lasagna, too.  It's definitely the cheese that makes it a cost-prohibitive meal, but it's so worth it!  Now that the SO's sister is living with us (which means I live with TWO vegetarians doh!  ), I'll have to make it with a meatless red sauce.

I've been hungry for homemade ravioli lately. I need to make some soon.

Cheese here is very reasonable since they make most of it here so we have lasagna quite often. I like to make my sauce with Italian sausage for a bit more flavor.

good home made lasagna is fairly expensive to make
I am not a fan of ricatta cheese so we use more parm and mozz.

Cottage Cheese is a close second taste wise and is easier to apply.

Oh I do use a little bit of cottage cheese in the lasagna. I also like to put pepperoni on the top to melt into the cheese. drooling

We make a "lasagna bianca", but with beef; and it's one of my favorite dishes.

First, you puree carrots, onion and celery and throw them in with the beef while it's browning. Then you make a bechamel sauce. The layers go lasagna, beef, sauce, mozzarella then lasagna again.
