Mom's Lasagna...... no ricotta no cottage cheese pure deliciousness

Mom's Lasagna doesn't have ricotta cheese , Lia is not a big fan of ricotta cheese
 and yet we never had Mom's lasagna while she was living in Florida
Today she was going to teach my kids how to make it

Somehow my kids got Grandma to do all the work
spread the sauce to the edges giving the bottom a good covering
 And picking out the noodles to fit just right
SMILE!
