WOW!!! This was absolutely the BEST!!! I made this tonight for dinner and it was delicious. My DH had 2 BIG helpings and he LOVED it!! Definately something I will make again and again. I followed the recipie exactly and added just a bit of sugar to the sauce. I always do to tomato sauces. BRAVO.
Made this last weekend for a special family get together. It was so outstanding. My guests thought it deserved more than 5 stars. Really, the best lasagna I have ever eaten. The preparation involves a little time but it was worth it. This is the best!!
I added a 16 oz. package of frozen spinach (thawed) to the cheese mixture (trying to sneak in vegies where I can). My family loved it. Will definitely make it again.
Oh my goodness sakes alive!!! This is without a doubt the best lasagna I have ever tasted. I can't rave about it enough. I love the mixture of ground beef and Italian sausage in the sauce. Rich, and cheesy as well. Thanks
Excellent! Really enjoyed the meaty gravy and compiled a "best of" from the other comments on this board. I used half cottage and half ricotta cheese and found it to be a great combination. I used uncooked pasta (not oven ready) and it turned out perfectly. I added 1 can of tomato paste full of water to the gravy and baked it for 35 minutes covered with tin foil and 25 minutes uncovered. Let stand for 20 minutes and it was not messy at all. The pasta soaked up all the extra liquids. Wow.
This Lasagna is the absolute best ever. I used oven ready noodles so I added 14 1/2 oz. of water to the sauce mixture for more moisture. I also added 1 Tblsp of sugar to the sauce. I used 32 oz of ricotta with 3 eggs & adjusted the seasonings for the cheese mixture accordingly. (We love cheese). I put a layer of sauce on the bottom of the pan first, (10X15X2 Coringware Roaster), then placed a layer of the oven ready noodles and so on, finishing with the sauce on the last layer of noodles and topping with some more parmesan cheese remaining mozzerella. Covered with foil and baked for 40 mins, removed foil and baked 10 more minutes. Gave 15 mins to rest and served. I had never used the oven ready noodles before and will now never boil lasagna noodles again. Awesome! Made 2x in 2 weeks for family/friend gatherings. This recipe is easy and delicious. I will definitely use this recipe again.
Wow is right...wish I could this a 10 star rating..definitely the best lasagna recipe I have ever tried...don't think I will try any other ones. The only adjustment I made was to add a paste can of water..my sauce up to that point was very thick..thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...Carrie
Yummy! I used
1 lb of Italian Sausage &
1 lb of ground beef,
Cottage Cheese, not ricotta & I used
Barilla no boil lasagna noodles to save me time. Worked great!
A definite keeper!
SO GOOD! This was my first time making Lasagna in the oven and not the crock pot. I dont think I will ever do it any other way again. After reading other reviews, here is what I did.
I doubled the sauce (were saucy people) and we dipped our garlic toast in the left over sauce. I used only ground beef, because it is what I had on hand. I used Italian seasoning instead of the other seasonings. 2 TBSP of brown sugar in the sauce. I put my cheese mixture right into my meat sauce. I find it easier to layer that way. It was to die for! I feel like I am going to roll everywhere because I ate so much! Thank you for posting!
We just finished dinner less than 30 minutes ago and I'm already posting a review. I've made lasagna before but it never came out right. This was excellent! I added some chopped portabella mushrooms and red pepper flakes to the meat mixture then added a package of frozen spinach to the cheese mixture. Great recipe, my family enjoyed this!!
