I have the original recipe card from 1980 from my Grandmother. I made it for the first time last night and even my picky 8 year old loved it! It came out exactly like the photo on the card.

If you cover the spaghetti with tin foil it does not get crunchy while baking

I am so glad I still have the original Better Home and Gardens Recipe Card Library, 1980, with this recipe. It is still the BEST one yet. I've cooked it with Italian sausage or a mix of beef and sausage or just beef, and it comes out great each time. The newer recipes do not do it justice for this all-time family favorite and classic. It's a keeper.

This has been my favorite family recipe for over 15 years. I had a cookbook and couldn't find it. I am so glad I found it on-line. It is the easier version of lasagna and my family loves it.
