This is my mother's lasagna and it is still my favorite. It is different because the recipe is from the 1960s or 70s. I am not to sure what is really Italian about it other then the noodles. It was a time in the Midwest when finding ricotta would have been difficult so cottage cheese was used instead. Often cooks added coffee to their tomato sauce for tannins since red wine consisted of sweet wines like Lancers. Dried herbs, mostly oregano would have been used to make the sauce. #italianamerican #lasagna #notarecipe #dinnerathome
