Dr. Richard Ireland’s Psychic Phenomenon Lasagna

Dr. Richard Ireland’s Psychic Phenomenon Lasagna is an old-school recipe  using items you likely have in your kitchen and freezer. The secret is to simmer the  sauce, perhaps longer than recipe calls for.

Psychic Phenomenon Lasagna

In the 1970’s Dr. Ireland gave me his recipe  after one of his shows in Waikiki.  He was a well-respected  psychic  of international fame and I was a skeptic. One night  while working his show, I realized I lost my gold necklace. I sent a question up to him along with  the guests’. He told me even to the exact step I’d find it on outside my house when I went home that night. Dr. Ireland’s Lasagna can contain peas or spinach, delish either way.
