Lakeside Lasagna

A mouthwatering treat

My mother always made wonderful lasagna. I can remember looking forward to having her lasagna. The house would smell so wonderful, and she would make big salads and garlic bread. This is a flavorful variation of my mother’s lasagna. I love a recipe that begins with a sauce you simmer for a few hours. As the house fills with the aroma of thick Italian sauce, I anticipate the amazing meal we will have later!
From start to finish, the sauce will take you about 15 minutes to make. You will have to simmer the sauce for 2 hours on low.
From start to finish, it will take you about 1 hour to assemble and bake.

This sauce is a bit spicy yet sweet.

1 lb. ground beef
1 pkg. Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage
1 1/2 tbsp. minced garlic
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
1 large can crushed tomatoes
2 small cans tomato paste

1 tsp black pepper
