I was thinking that I’ve never made a regular lasagna from scratch before. I’ve done veggie lasagnas, a butternut squash lasagna, and a frozen store-bought lasagna, but never a straight up lasagna. So when my friend posted this recipe on Facebook with rave reviews, I just had to try it.
This is a Pioneer Woman recipe, and it really is called “The Best. Lasagna. Ever.” With a title like that, it had a lot to live up to. But with a mix of ground beef and breakfast sausage, and a whole pound of mozzarella in it, I figured it could.
And boy oh boy, this was the richest tasting lasagna I’ve ever had! The three cheeses, the breakfast sausage, the spices, it all worked. My first impression was that it was too rich. But I thought about it all evening and had another piece before bed and liked it more. And then I thought about it all morning, and afternoon. And now I can’t wait to have leftovers! To me, that’s a sign of a good recipe!
(The title pic looks nice and neat and square because it was leftover and cold waiting to be reheated. This is what it looked like straight out of the oven.)
