I made this a few days ago and it is now sitting in my freezer waiting to go to a family dinner next week. Even though I haven't yet tasted it I know from looking at and smelling it that it is going to be delicious. For the tomato sauce I used recipe number 8581 (Delicious Tomato Sauce) but did not add the meatballs. With the price of meat and cheese now, next time I make it I will decrease the amount of meat to three-quarters of a pound as I think it does not need one and a quarter pound.

I'm always nervous trying a new no-boil lasagna recipe, though I don't know why as I've never had one turn out poorly yet. I was a bit skeptical on this after the first 30 minutes as it seemed too runny, but that last 15 minutes took care of that. I have to say I didn't eat but a bite of it, after it was cold, because my mom called right as I was getting supper on the table and told me my dad was in the hospital with chest pains. Kind of killed my appetite. However, my picky 11 yr old daughter, who informed me that she "doesn't really care for lasagna", scarfed it down and said it was delicious - so I KNOW it's good! It smelled amazing while it cooked and the bit I tasted was delicious. It was easy to make and I'll be filing this away in my "Make This Often" file (:

I just made this tonight and it's delicious. I've never made lasagna without cooking the noodles so I was a little skeptical, but they cooked perfectly. I followed the directions exactly except that I didn't use meat. My kids loved it so this is something I'll make again. Thanks so much for sharing!

This is an awesome and easy recipe which tastes great! My kids and husband really enjoy it and it doesn't last long if there are any leftovers. I use ground turkey in place of the Italian sausage and add a bit more seasonings. Really good!

I have never prepared a lasagna without boiling the noodles first. Now I will never go back! I did add some chopped (well drained) spinach (personal preference) and as mentioned, this is so adaptable that next time I may omit the spinach and add some mushrooms. We will make this again and again. Thanks for a great recipe!

This was very good lasagna, and soooo easy because there was no boiling involved. However, I did think the meat overpowered the cheese filling a bit, and I only used about 3/4 of a pound of meat, plus a whole pound of ricotta. I will use this recipe from now on, but just adjust the meat and cheese amounts more to our tastes (this recipe is so adaptable!). The instructions and cooking times are right on. Thanks much for posting.

Very good. The son and I loved it. I don't think I will ever go back to boil first noodles again.

I made this yesterday for dinner. Just changed the italian sausage for 1/2 hot italian sausage and half lean ground beef. Used Dreamfield pasta to lower the carbs. My husband and I both loved this! I will make it again and soon!!!

I promise I do have every intention of trying this as written but I have used it to make my now-famous butternut squash lasagna. I use a pound of sweet Italian turkey sausage with the casings removed, a (thawed) 10-oz package of frozen butternut squash instead of the diced tomatoes, and a whole jar of Dave's Gourmet Butternut Squash pasta sauce instead of tomato based sauce. I use an entire tub of ricotta and whole-wheat lasagna noodles. Oh my gods - best lasagna I have ever had. I imagine as written it's also amazing, and I do intend to try it that way. Thank you so much for providing this recipe for me to use as a base - you have turned me from a novice lasagna-maker to a celebrity (just within my family, but still)!

This was an excellent and easy lasagna. We wanted a recipe that didn't require boiling the noodles, as that always gets messy. We used cottage cheese instead of ricotta and it turned out great! Next time I will definitely try it with ground Italian turkey to make it more healthy and probably add some spinach or other vegetables as well, as they could certainly easily be added. Might as well get some vitamins out of it!
