10-12 potatoes
3/4 lb. sharp cheese (extra sharp)
1 lb. lasagna noodles, cooked al dente

Cook potatoes and mash. Add salt and pepper. (Do not add milk). Add cheese, cut into small chunks or grated, to potato. Generously grease 9 x 13 inch pan. Place a layer of cooked noodles on the bottom of pan then spread a layer of mashed potatoes mixture and repeat above ending with a layer of noodles on top. Cover with foil and bake for 30-40 minutes at 350 degrees. Taste cheese and potato to see if you want more cheese.

Faith is far more interior. The only thing that matters is how we love. “
