Well this is the story:
The mission here was to make a lasagna for my friend. If I were lazy about it I would have bought a frozen lasagna and baked it, of bought a box of noodles, etc.
But I made it from scratch, including the noodles. Noodles are easy when you have a KItchenAide with the noodles attachment, but it's not hard to do without the KA is you have an extra set of hands or are young and dextrous. Next time I make noodles I will do more to keep them flat.
My friend does not eat red meat, thus this is a vegetarian lasagna. If I were to make it with meat, I would use a mixture of sweet and spicy sausages to get the right amount of heat. My experience says that spicy sausages in New England are not very spicy at all whereas in Texas they might be a lot more spicy.
Noodles: Any recipe will do, I used XL, 2 whole eggs and three yolks., ran them down to the #6 setting on the roller.
Ragout: Here do your favorite thing for a tomato sauce, open a can or jar and use it, or make it fancy. Add an appropriate quatity of a fermented beverage. I sauteed onions, shrooms, carrots, garlic, ground (canned) tomatoes, tomato paste, paprika, red pepper flakes, thyme. The mushrooms are you common white mushrooms, but use your favorites. I have psilocybins in the back 40 but would not use them
Cheeses: I shredded Mozzarella and Parmagiana Regiano.
Veggie: Thinly sliced Zucchini (1/8").
White layer: I mixed together Ricotta, steamed spinach, and basil.
I have photos that I am trying to add. I'll keep trying
