Tom’s Mom’s Lasagna

I decided to make Tom his mother’s lasagna recipe for Saturday night. I brought home her recipe file to make some of his favorite recipes his mom used to cook. It is pretty similar to what I make and it goes together really quickly. The first step is to make the sauce. While it is cooking I mix together the cheese mixture.

Boil the lasagna noodles until almost done. You don’t want them all of the way done or they will get mushy on you. I usually cook mine for about 6 minutes. Rinse the noodles under cold water. Let drain.

I use a 9 x 13 deep pan I have to make my lasagna with.
