Lasagna! It was always my choice for a birthday meal. Well, there was that one year that, when asked what I wanted for my birthday dinner, I responded, “Liver and onions.” Thankfully I was told, “No.” (Of course that made me wonder, why did you ask if you don’t want my answer, but that is for a different day.)
Lasagna is tedious, and worth every minute of effort. You will notice that the second recipe is for the spaghetti sauce. It is a recipe for 40 people because grandma catered events such as weddings and church dinners, so we often worked with large quantities.
