Lisa is right. This is an easy recipe. I am not a person that follows a recipe exactly. I added sliced fresh mushrooms used leftover grilled green peppers and used an Italian blend of shredded cheese. Delicious! My boyfriend said it was the best lasagne he has ever ate! Even without my substitutions I know this is a good recipe. Read More

I did not care for this at all! Lacked flavor- ground beef made the taste overall very bland. I would recommend using crumbled pork or Italian sausage to add to the flavors. Read More

This recipe was right on the money as far as servings go. The consistany was perfect and it looked fantastic. I recommend covering it with foil for the first 35 minutes of cooking time and then uncover for the last 10 minutes. This allows the top to brown but not burn. It could have had more tang to it. Maybe add ground red pepper?? Read More

My husband and my dad thought this was great! I think that it did need more seasoning like alot more... I followed someone else's suggestion to cover with foil until the last ten minutes and it came out just perfectly browned and bubbling. Read More

For anyone who would like a little different taste for a "veggie" lasagna. I used the canned tomoates mentioned in another review & they worked great. The cheddar cheese makes it taste so much different than those using mozerella. I used extra cheddar sprinkled between the layers to make it really cheesy. Definitely one to make again!! YUM!

I added an extra egg and several pounds more cheese. Cheese of all kinds. I also covered it with foil and cooked it for 50 minutes then uncovered it to brown for about 10 minutes because that's how I roll daddyo. Barilla no-boil lasagne noodles work AWESOME and don't make the dish too starchy. good job Lisa. I will name my firstborn daughter after you in honor of your delicious recipe. Read More
