    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is well worth the effort to make, it's a fabulous dish! to save time the lamb sauce and the white sauce can me made up to 2 days ahead and refrigerated. The best canned tomatoes and sauce will make a difference to the meat sauce, so try and purchase a good quality product for this recipe and of coarse all recipes! If you are not a feta lover then substitute mozzarella cheese for the feta. The recipe states 12 lasagna noodles, I usually cook a couple more just in case a couple tear while boiling.

      This is a great recipe for a lazy Sunday afternoon/evening when there is plenty of time to prep and enjoy the results of your hard work. We concurred with Kitten that the recipe is well worth the effort. The lasagna is very flavorful. At first we were worried about the amount of cinnamon and allspice, but it blended perfectly in the final stages of the dish. We cooked in the oven for less time as our lasagna started smoking while cooking covered. However, even though we cooked it less time, the final product seemed perfectly timed. We look forward to all of our leftovers tomorrow. Thanks, Kitten, for a really nice Sunday meal.
