    I just posted my Italian pasta sauce recipe that i use fresh and also can it. After tasting this sauce my family and friends no longer buy it in stores they buy the jars and ingrediants for me to make it for them.

    Just came across this recipe and it sounds really good. I hate ricotta and cottage cheese and have been looking for something different. Who cares if it has jar sauce. Any short cut helps these days. If someone is offended by that they need not make the recipe.

    Well, you know, everyone makes their own dishes different ways. I know ricotta is a main ingredient in Italian food, but I dont use it in my lasagna. I do really like ricotta, just not in MY lasagna. Im not saying I wouldnt eat it in any lasagna, I just make mine how I make it and Im Italian. OK, but thanks for the info.

    My In Laws Own and run a Italian Restaurant here in town and my wife dad's family still have and run a small cafe in a small town in Italy can't remember the name of the city would have to ask my wife..But Ricotta is used Intensively in some of the recipes on both menus from Lasagna,Pastas,Pizzas to Desserts and Sauces... And we all know that dishes differ slightly in Italy from region to region just like in any other country.
    Just some info....

    Sounds wonderful, and I too like to take short cuts when possible. This recipe sounds really good, you have another 5 forks coming your way from me. Keep the good recipes coming, I think we have the same tastes :0)

    I say don't be unless you have the time to make it. I am a fan of those that can create quicker ways of making old favorites that still have a great flavor. We all know that from scratch is great but not everyone has the time 100% of the time.I love lasagna but don't make it cause of my family...I will try yours in a small batch ;o) for me!! Thanks!

    Sounds a bit more authentic to me..not because I know by being Italian but an Italian woman I knew by association said that authentic lasagna does not include ricotta or cottage cheese like most Americans use. She didn't say exactly but I think you got it right with the bechamel sauce, no?
