So good I had to steal it !!!

It’s not often (NEVER), that the Chef gives credit to someone else for a recipe but this recipe for Lasagna was so good, I can’t improve it.  Served at the Loon Feather Reunion Party, I spent some time trying to figure out the spices in the red sauce that made this dish so good. I tasted fennel, red pepper flakes (hint of heat) and Basil. When I finally asked Lynn for the recipe, I find out the secret ingredient is HOT Italian Sausage: go figure.

Anyway here it is, try it, You’ll like it.
