The combination of pasta and potatoes is pretty popular among the Italians. They easily mix pasta with potatoes in soup, pasta sauce or lasagna.
Ground pork in the sauce gives this lasagna a richer texture and taste. The thinly sliced potatoes are awesome. They work perfectly and can be a replacement of lasagna noodles. If you don’t want to combine them together in one recipe, try to cook potatoes until they’re just about tender so they hold up some.
