Old World Lasagna

A friend of mine from high school contacted me, via Facebook, with this recipe. His wife's grandmother is Italain. This is one of her recipes. It looks delicious. We are hoping he sends us some of his family's German recipes. He has a house full of "good eats." Enjoy! Thanks John!
