Our World Famous Lasagna Recipe
Well, O.K. it's not exactly World Famous, but we did get an international e-mail from someone who said they tried it.
Brown One pound ground beef or chuck with one clove of garlic minced or pressed. After browning, drain off fat.
Add Two 6-oz. cans of tomato paste; One 16-oz. can of tomato sauce; One tsp. parsley flakes; One tsp. basil; 1/2 tsp. salt; 1/2 tsp. anise seed crushed. Simmer until sauce is thick, about 30 min.
