    2. 1 cup sauce
    3. 3/4 cup of the Ricotta cheese mixture
    4. 1/3 cup of the cooked meat

**I make this the night before so that all I have to do the night of dinner is pop it into the oven!

**Make a tent with the foil when you cover the lasagna so as not to touch the melting cheese.

**Make the sauce however you like.  I’ve added garlic and mushrooms as well.

**The lasagna is only as good as your sauce.  I use Mid’s tomato basil which I LOVE!
