Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
You can add another small jar of sauce if you like extra sauce. You can also make your own sauce.

My family loves this lasagna as the sausage gives it better flavor than the hamburger. You can do 1 1b of hamburger and 1 lb sausage.

NOTE: We do not like Rocotta cheese, but you cannot even taste it in this recipe, so don't hesitate using it.

I have served this to several guests and always receive compliments.
