remember the ancient lasagne stuff - ooey, gooey, cheese-y, really good stuff? before the advent of instant water and 5 minute microwave lasagne?

here's a an excellent recipe to revisit, it's lip smacking good.

based on:
Better Homes and Gardens
1968 "New Cook Book"
p 123


1 pound Italian sausage
1 clove minced garlic
1 tablespoon whole basil
1.5 teaspoon salt
1 pound can of crushed tomato - not drained
12 ounces by wt tomato paste

10 ounces by wt lasagne noodles
2 large eggs
3 cups Ricotta cheese
0.5 cups grated parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons parlsey flakes (dried)
1 teaspoon salt
0.5 teaspoon pepper
1 pound mozarella cheese

brown meat slowly - spoon off excess fat.
add: garlic, basil, salt, crushed tomato, tomato paste
simmer about 30 minutes; stir regularly

cook noodles in salted water & drain

beat eggs
add: ricotta, parmesan cheese, parsley, salt, pepper

in a 13x9 pan:
layer half the noodles, spread with half the egg plus cheeses, etc., mixture
spread half the mozarella cheese
spread half the meat sauce.

add second layer of noodles repeat the layer of egg mixture, mozarella and meat sauce.

bake at 375'F about 30 minutes; allow to rest 10 minutes prior to service.
