My husband does not like tomato sauce, so this is a delicious alternative. Spicy sausage gives it a kick!

This is absolutely fantastic! BUT - there's no way there's enough sauce to hande three layers of noodles. It needs at least half again as much sauce if not twice the amount of sauce. I ended up adding a couple tablespoons of heavy cream between the layers and only used two layers of noodles. The flavor is amazing though!!! I'll definitely be making this again. Read More

This was ok...I am not sure what overwhelmed me about it. I think I would skip the cheddar (and only use 1 cup as suggested by others) and just do the mozzerella instead. I also added a minced clove of garlic to my sausage...yummy. This is for SURE a filling meal!!! Read More

Very good and different from the norm. Made some changes to this one I used all Mozz instead of cheddar used around two jars of alfredo sauce mixed in a can of diced tomatoes drained and a can of mushrooms drained to the ricotta mixture. YUMMY! Read More

Excellent although you may need to add more milk or cream to the sauce to keep the noodles moist enough. I also added roasted red peppers which were tasty. Read More

I used regular lasagna noodles and soaked them in hot water for about 15-20 minutes. I had cottage cheese (16 oz.) so I used that instead of ricotta. This is really good with added fresh mushrooms (saute in a little butter garlic & a pinch of salt). I also doubled the cheese on top. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing. Read More

Good like another reviewer said the jarred sauce in combination with the sausage was fairly salty. I did change the recipe based on others' reviews. I used turkey Italian sausage. I also sauteed sliced button and cremini mushrooms minced garlic and mixed them with the sausage and alfredo sauce. Instead of extra jarred sauce I used an equal amount of milk and 1 TB unsalted butter/flour roux. I also replaced the Cheddar with mozz and I used fresh spinach wilted squeezed of water and chopped mixed in with the cheeses. I baked 35 min with the foil on 10 min with the foil off to brown the cheese on top. Because of the saltiness I think next time I'll use 1/2 sausage 1/2 ground beef or turkey. Also I'll add a little ground nutmeg to the alfredo... Read More

Wow! this was incredible! I can't say enough about the heavenly taste!. The cheese mixture did not cover evrything but cheese melts. I just tried to evenly distribute the mixture and it came out perfect. I followed the recipe except that I bought mushroom alfredo sauce. Yum! Next time I may add some canned mushrooms. AMAZING flavor!! Read More

This is so good! My SO and I both really don't like tomato sauce so we tried this! I cut the sausage amount in half added 1/2 pound of lean ground beef and 8 fresh spinach instead of the frozen. I doubled the amount of the Alfredo sauce. Next time I will add a small amount of sauteed onion and garlic. Read More
