Family and Friends love this recipe. When using jarred sauce be careful not to use one with a sweet taste. Will ruin the flavor. Classico or Paul Newman work well if you don't have time to make it yourself. Read More

This was just okay. My husband and I felt it needed a bit more zip. I used the two packages of spinach but maybe should have included Italian sausage instead of one of the packages of spinach. If I were to make this again I'd use fresh garlic instead of powder as well as fresh basil. Read More

Delicious! I made sure noodles were cold and so was filling. No trouble rolling. (I did allow for some noodles to break and be discarded.) Substituted ricotta for the cottage cheese and added hot italian sausage to the tomato mixture. Heated and served extra sauce (Classico red pepper) along with fresh grated parmesan. It was a definite success for our party! Read More

I took your advice and used italian sausage for my meat loving husband. It turned out great. It was kind of hard to get the mix to stay inside the pasta as you are trying to roll it but it was delicious. I froze some for later too! Read More

I needed a quick and easy recipe for last nights dinner and this really fit the bill. Had no time to make my own sauce so I just used jarred and jazzed it up a bit. I also used low fat ricotta cheese instead of cottage. I didn't really measure out the ingredients but it came together in a snap. Much easier and faster then making the traditional lasagna or stuffed shells. Family loved it Michele! Read More

This dish was really good both my roomie and I devoured it. I stayed close to the recipe but added Italian seasoning to the spinach mixture threw in a couple of cloves of garlic and subbed ricotta for the cottage cheese. Used jarred sauce because of time and I par-cooked the noodles instead of cooking them to al dente since they finish cooking in the oven. Additionally no need to spray or grease the pan...just throw a layer of sauce down before putting your rolls in - this prevents them from sticking. I didn't find them to be messy or hard to put together like others had mentioned nor did I think they took all that long to prepare. These will be made again - with Italian sausage being worked in I am sure. Thanks! Read More

Pretty good but next time I would stuff jumbo shells instead of rolling lasagna noodles because its easier. I also would substitute one pkg of spinach with other vegetables. Read More

Made this for the first time tonight and my family loved it! I did substitute half the spinach for a lb of cooked sausage with Italian seasoning added. I also used manicotti shells which were very easy to stuff with the mixture once everything was cool. Will definitely make this again! Read More
