Best Classic Lasagna Recipe

Meet your new favorite Lasagna recipe! This truly is the most delicious lasagna. The hearty layers of meat, cheese and pasta are filling and so flavorful. Even my super picky boys love it!


October is my favorite month, which is a fairly new thing (so sorry, July). There's only a week of it left and I will be so sad to say, Goodbye, see ya in eleven months. Yesterday was the most perfect, dreamy, crisp-weathered fall day. I'll think of it often in the coming months, as I'm slipping on ice and driving in blizzards.

One of the many things I love about October is its spectrum of permissible fare. I mean, we've got apple recipes and pumpkin recipes and soup recipes and comfort food recipes. We're starting to think Christmas cookies and Thanksgiving dinner, too. Isn't it great? If you are even half the food lover I am, I know you're agreeing with me. Wink.


If you know me, you know I'm all about the comfort food. Chili and Meatloaf and Goulash and Chicken Pot Pie all make my heart sing. So why, comfort-food-loving food blogger, have you not a lasagna recipe on your site? Well, there's this White Lasagna and it is gooo-ooo-ood, but a red-sauce version is necessary, don't you think?


I recently posted about my new favorite Pasta Sauce recipe and I highly recommend using it in this lasagna. In a pinch, fine, use store-bought, but if at all possible please make the sauce yourself. It is the magic key that will transform "Lasagna Recipe" into "World's Most Delicious Lasagna Recipe." Trust me. Be warned, though, once you make the pasta sauce and pour it into jars, you'll need to make the lasagna quickly. Everyone in your family will start asking, "Can I use this on my....fill in the blank...?" and you'll need to push it behind the pickles and baking soda as you fight them off.


Once the sauce is ready to go, this becomes the easiest lasagna recipe ever to throw together.


And when it comes out of the oven, swooning will occur. The smells, the colors, the textures, you'll hardly be able to hold yourself together. Especially if it is still October because isn't everyone extra giddy this month? Just me?

Enjoy, friends. I truly believe that you will love this recipe and I wish you the most amazing day and week!
