Ingredients for the sauce:

¼ cup Olive oil
¼ cup minced garlic
1 diced large onion
1 diced green pepper

1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
1 16 oz can whole tomatoes
10 large bay leaves
1 lb ground beef
1/1 pound Italian sausage
2 cups heavy cream
1 16 oz container ricotta cheese
Salt pepper to taste

Noodles and cheese:

1 box lasagna noodles
I used barilla oven ready lasagna pasta no boiling needed

2 cups mozzarella cheese
1 cup fontina cheese
½ mixed parmesan and pecorino romana cheese
¼ cup gorgonzola cheese

Preheat oven at 375


Cook the ground beef and sausage in a large pot over medium heat; drain

Add onion, green and red peppers cook with meat for 3-5 minutes.

Add garlic cook for 2 minutes

Add crushed and whole tomatoes. While cooking break the whole tomatoes

up into chunks.

Cook for 30 minutes on low heat

After 30 minutes add heavy cream and ricotta cheese

While this is cooking shred your cheese and mix them together

To assemble lasagna:

Ladle enough of the meat sauce into a 9x13 inch baking dish to cover the

bottom in a thin layer

Cover with noodles about 3 there will be space between the noodles its ok

Ladle more sauce over the noodles top with cheese mixture and repeat the

process until all noodles are gone

Once you are done top your lasagna with the rest of the cheese mixture

Place on a baking sheet in case of boil over and bake for 25 minutes

Remove the cover and bake another 10 minutes

Remove from oven and let it sit for 15 minutes before cutting

We tried this and knew we had a winner!
