Reviewed Lasagna Bolognese

Feb 14, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

So far we haven't eaten it, but having made the Manly Man Lasagna, I know the bolognese is to die for, so it can't be all bad. It is in the oven as I speak, and my only quibble, is that I used the pan that I used for the Manly Man-- an extra large, deep, lasagna dish.

The taste is delectable, especially while mixing the creme. However, as one reviewer notes, it does not set up with the way the recipe is written, or rather, it sets up wetly. It does need to be drained at some point during the process. If the consistency had been firmer, I would have given it another star. The raspberry coulis was delicious and...
