 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/8  quarts        tomato sauce
    1 1/8  pounds        canned tomatoes
    2                    medium onions
    8                    cloves garlic
      1/2  pound         black olives -- drained (optional)
      1/2  pound         green olives -- drained (optional)
      1/2  pound         mushrooms (optional)
    1                    large bunch broccoli (optional)
    1      pound         mozzarella cheese
    1      pound         other cheese (cheddar, swiss, jack, etc.)
    1 1/8  pounds        cottage cheese
      7/8  ounce         parsley (optional)
      1/2  pound         spinach
    3                    eggs
    2 1/4  pounds        lasagna noodles (approximately 2 boxes)
                         Italian spices -- to taste
 
 1.  Sauce:  Put tomatoes and tomato sauce in large pot over low heat.  Press
  garlic, add.  Chop onions, olives, mushrooms, and broccoli, add.  Add
  spices to taste. Simmer covered over low heat until the whole tomatoes have
  merged with the rest of the sauce and you can no longer tell where one
  begins and the other ends.
 
 2.  Cheese:  Grate the cheeses and mix.  Add eggs, parsley, and spinach, mix
  well.
 
 3.  Building the lasagna:  In a lasagna pan, put in just enough sauce to
  cover the bottom of the pan.  Make a layer of noodles.  Using about half of
  the available cheese mixture, make a layer of cheese.  Another layer of
  noodles.  Cover the noodles with sauce, the important thing being to make
  sure all noodles have at least some sauce on them.  Another layer of
  noodles. Use the rest of the cheese mixture and make a layer of cheese.
  Put down the last layer of noodles, then use the remaining amount of sauce,
  or as much as possible, and cover the noodles in sauce.
 
 4.  Bake at 190 °C for 45 minutes.
 
 Author’s Notes:
     This recipe was posted to usenet by sridhar@spt.tek.com who got it from
  Sean Gilley (slg@e.ms.uky.edu).  I modifed it slightly to my tastes
  (naturally).
 
     The lasagna noodles are when you build the lasagna.  Be stingy with the
  sauce, if you aren't, you'll end up short at the end where you need it
  most. If you do things as specified here, you will end up with a lasagna
  layered as (s-n-c-n-s-n-c-n-s), (sauce, noodles, cheese, etc.) but some
  prefer the heretic’s way: (c-n-s-c-n-s-c-n-s)
 
 Difficulty    : moderate.
 Precision     : Approximate measurement OK.
