Regardless of its origins, lasagna is a simple dish to make that everyone can enjoy.


1. Sauce it Up

Good lasagna begins with a good sauce. Saute two cloves of finely chopped garlic with one tablespoon of olive oil in a saucepan for five minutes. Add two large cans of tomato sauce, about 60 ounces. Add one tablespoon each of salt and sugar, and two teaspoons each of parsley, oregano, pepper, and basil. Cover with a lid and simmer on low heat, so the flavors have a chance to marry. Now prepare the meat while your sauce is simmering.
