We loved this! I doubled the Italian sausage added two minced garlic cloves and topped it off with fresh chopped basil. This was so easy to put together. This is a dish that will be made over and over. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I had to add salt and garlic powder. The tomatoes were a little sour so I added some sugar. It was ok. I'm not sure I would make it again. Read More

This was delicious - my family of 4 all cleaned their plates. Per the other review I added additional seasonings. I also doubled the meat and blended the diced tomatoes with the paste to make it less chunky (we all love meaty lasagna & none of us like really chunky sauce.) The best part was it took 30 minutes from start to finish when my normal lasagna takes 7-8 hours! I will definitely make it again in the future. Read More

This was an easy twist on lasagna that everyone liked. The only complaint is it lacks seasoning as written and was a little bland for our liking. I will make again but will up the spices and garlic. Read More

Made as directed but added 1 tsp. oregano 2 cloves garlic and a pinch of fresh basil and it still wasn't good at all. The canned tomato taste dominated this recipe likely because the sauce isn't simmered to allow the flavors to meld. Def won't be making this again. Read More

This was really good! Enjoyed by everyone. I used gluten free noodles bowtie wasn't available but GF Rotini worked well. Next time I might use extra seasoning however great recipe. Thank you Hunt's! Read More

This turned out great. Instead of regular Italian sausage I used Italian links. Also my 17 year old son doesn't link onions and I used onion powder. Otherwise I followed the recipe. The links added a good texture to the meal. My son ate two servings! He called it bake-free lasagna. Would I change anything else? Well there's always room for more cheese! Read More
