Truly Homemade Lasagna

Yesterday, I took full advantage of my last day of vacation by making homemade ricotta, homemade pasta, and transforming them into lasagna.  I only wished I had home-canned tomatoes left from last summer.  I was inspired by the ricotta recipe posted at Simple, Green, Frugal Co-op, and I was surprised by how easy it was.  I also used my pasta machine (a wedding present) for the first time.  My brother Nathaniel helped me set it up and figure out how to use it.
