Instructions
  1. Start by making a fresh tomato sauce. Heat the olive oil in a large pot or dutch oven. Cook the onions until translucent, then add garlic. Cook for about a minute, then add the carrots and celery. Cook for about ten minutes to concentrate the flavors. Add meat and brown. Add the black olives and mushrooms. Mix well. Add the whole tomatoes, crushing as you add them. Add the tomato paste and water. Let simmer for 20 minutes.

  2. Cook the lasagna noodles until al dente. When done, immediately rinse them under cool water and toss in some olive oil to keep them from sticking.

  3. Mix the ricotta, mascarpone, eggs, parsley, nutmeg and half the parmesan cheese.

  4. Layer your lasagna. Start with a layer of sauce, then overlap noodles. Then add meat sauce, ricotta mix, mozzarella cheese. Add another layer of noodles, meat sauce, ricotta mix, mozzarella cheese. Add a third layer of noodles, meat sauce, ricotta mix and mozarella cheese. Next add noodles, the remaining sauce and the remaining parmesan cheese. Extra parmesan cheese at this point can’t hurt.

  5. Bake covered for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Uncover, and bake for another ten minutes to brown the top.
