susan s delicious lasagna bolognese


this is an authentic tasting "ragu" sauce that is super rich and super flavorful. the bolognese portion of this recipe can be served over any thick pasta, as well as, be the primary component of this lasagna. i happen to love this lasagna and have been tweaking it for years. i'm not a fan of ricotta cheese based lasagna's and as you'll see from this recipe...this is coupled with a beschemel type sauce rather than ricotta or cottage cheese. you can spice this one up further (i sure do!) with crushed red peppers in your sauce. you can also tone it down with mild italian sausage or turkey italian sausage. the bolognese sauce can be made up to 3 days in advance and warmed up to make for the lasagna. this lasagna is also best baked right after assembling or the pasta will absorb the sauces and dry out. enjoy!!
