The lasagna dish cannot be mentioned without referring to its Italian origins, which is mainly represented by a harmonious mixture of layers of lasagna, ground meat sauce, cheese with easy-to-prepare bechamel sauce

Everyone loves a good lasagna, right? It’s a great way to feed a crowd and a perfect dish to bring to a potluck. It freezes well. It reheats well. Leftovers will keep you happy for days.

Simply Recipes reader Alton Hoover sent me his favorite recipe for lasagna which he has been cooking since his college days. Alton’s original recipe created enough lasagna for a small army so I halved it. What is posted here will easily serve eight people.
