usually, i make a sauce by using fresh tomatoes, about a pound and a half of them. chop them up all to shit. dump in a fuckton of pressed garlic. i'm talking about maybe 6 or 7 cloves worth. i like garlic, so i abuse it. dump in some water (not a lot, maybe 1/4 cup), a little bit of olive oil, fresh basil, red wine (i'm partial to this), some oregano, salt, black pepper, and about a teaspoon of sugar. cook that shit. simmmmmmmer. (i'm horrible with times and measurements. this is all guessing to me. i just kind of like to throw stuff in a pan and cook and it works somehow).
fresh lasagna. yes. lay it in there with the sauce.
i also like to mix in a little bit of olive oil and an egg with my ricotta to keep it from getting gross. i sometimes add pesto if i'm in the mood. sometimes nutmeg.
i like to add in veggies - especially squash and zucchini to it. i also add roma tomatoes to the top of it.
my fav cheese combos - ricotta, asiago, parmesan, romano, mozzarella.
back when i did eat beef and pork, i would add in italian sausage, hamburger meat, pepperonis (the HUGE ones) too. worked out quite wonderfully.
