I'm always a bit of a skeptic when I see recipes titled "the BEST....." because I feel like everyone is a critic and people are so particular about the food they eat and what their expectations.
BUT, I was on a mission to make a damn good, but simple and classic, lasagna. I follow A LOT of food blogs and I have far too many cookbooks, so you would think I have a ton of lasagna recipes at my disposal. Well, a little column A, a little of column B.
When I googled and stumbled upon The Pioneer Woman's "The best lasagna. EVER." recipe, I was intrigued. After checking out the ingredients, I spotted the one ingredient I thought pushed it over the edge: hot breakfast sausage.
I had made a few other recipes from her blog and I was never disappointed. Its comfort food at best, because she does live on a cattle ranch in the middle of America, with her 4 kids and cowboy husband. But simple it was and it was exactly what I was looking for.
