It doesn't have to be pretty, just delicious!
It doesn’t have to be pretty, just delicious!

I found this recipe on All Recipes(of course) and seeing it had over 3,000 reviews I decided it was lasagna time. I gathered the ingredients, which looks like more than it is and got to work! The result? Truly the best damn lasagna I’ve ever had. Cheesy, meaty, saucy, gooey and so full of flavor. I can’t wait to dig into the leftovers sitting the fridge. So avoid buying a prepacked old and frozen lasagna… whip out your 9X13 pan, a large sauce pan or dutch oven, and 3 hours of time and make the World’s Best Lasagna!
