I can’t even tell you how many times after slaving away in the kitchen all day and producing what I expect to be a great meal, my husband sighs and says, “can’t you just make something normal?”. Really? Really?! Well here ya go, honey! A classic lasagna with no “abnormal” ingredients.
Well, not totally normal. I did make my own ricotta. I promise, it is so easy though you’ll wonder why you never made it before! Plus I did not have ricotta in my refrigerator, but did have milk and heavy cream on hand.
I love using the pre-seasoned canned tomatoes when I want to make a quick recipe. Plus, it’s nice that they already have basil in them because my garden certainly does not this time of year. (Midwest problems) The only thing I am growing right now is a half-dead parsley plant. Sometimes it just makes more sense to buy something that was canned when the veggies were fresh!
This is a great, classic lasagna recipe for when your husband requests something “normal”. Comfort food at it’s finest, and it can also be made ahead of time, which is always a bonus! If you like this recipe, and would like a chance to win a lasagna kit, head on over to Red Gold’s FB page to enter!

*Sidenote: the husband also thoroughly enjoyed an “abnormal” lasagna a few weeks later flavored by roasted butternut squash and goat cheese.
