This took much exhaustive research to find. My goal was to find the recipe for the Old Spaghetti Factory lasagna. This may or may not be the exact recipe, but it is very close. The Old Spaghetti Factory lasagna is the best lasagna I've personally ever tasted. It elicits an almost inaudible moan with every bite. This takes a 9x13 slightly deeper than a standard Pyrex. I purchased a deeper pan specifically for making this lasagna.

    This recipe has way too much sodium. It can be made healthier by eliminating the salt and adding Also Salt (a salt substitute) and eliminate the sugar and adding 1 teaspoon of Truvia. Use a small curd cottage cheese instead of ricotta, go to a reduced fat mozarella, and a reduced fat parmesan. Flavor will not be affected.
