This recipe used too much Italian Seasoning and it was unclear about what sauce to use in the bottom of the pan. Do you use the sauce that has the meat mixed in it or do you get some plain sauce to pour in the bottom of the pan. Read More

I am a new found cook and I find myself being held up to the reputation of my mothers delicious homemade recipes. I decided to try this lasagna and it was so simple and fast! Cheap too! I bought all the ingredients for 10.00 and fed my boyfriend for an entire week! I would advise using a little more ricotta cheese but it tasted fantastic anyhow! Thanks for the help! Read More

This recipe was great! I used no bake noodles and it still turned out wonderfully. I also used less seasoning about 2 tbls. It tasted great and gave my husband and I a week worth of dinners. I will definitely make this again! Read More

Definitely too much italian seasoning I recommend cutting it back to about 2tblsp too. I also think it couldn't hurt to use a little more shredded cheese. Will definitely be making this again but with these changes!! Read More

This does not have enough ricotta. You need 1 large container. Plus it needs 1/4 cup parmesan and one egg mixed into the cheese mixture along with the mozzarella.. Read More

Made this for my very picky brother-in- law. He thought it was the best he has ever had. My daughter who also makes a mean lasagne had to admit that it was better than her version. Thanks for a wonderful recipe! Read More
