My friend, Claire has been telling me about her grandma's lasagna for years now. I've always wanted to try it, but alas, she has never posted the recipe until recently. It's always good to have a couple of good lasagna recipes in your back pocket, and until this one, I've always just stuck with my mom's recipe. Well, once Claire updated her blog with GG's recipe, I knew lasagna was going to be on our table posthaste. Let me tell you, GG did not disappoint. It. was. fantastic. My kids loved it, and my husband said that it was one of his favorites (Secretly, I think he liked GG's lasagna better than my mom's version, but he knew better than to say that out loud.) The best news is that I now have a second lasagna recipe to alternate between my mom's. If you are in the market to try an awesome lasagna, this one is highly recommended!!!
