This was good. I added 2 Italian Sausages, wrapping removed, crumbled and cooked with the ground beef and drained. I also used fresh baby Spinach, washed and dried on layers one and three. I like spinach but not frozen spinach for this type of cooking. Too hard to get even and fresh spinach tastes better. I also added in the Parmesan .

This is a great way to make lasagna, i use 2 lbs of mild italian sausage and 24 oz of cottage cheese, no ricotta, for a special flavor i add hormel mini pepperonis to each layer. It comes out great and everyone loves it. I will be making it for Christmas Eve dinner this year.

Awesome recipe but really got me angry the first and second time I made it because you need more sauce then the recipe says. I thought that I did something wrong the first time but then made it again because it was so good and realized it wasn't me. Get 2 jars of sauce and you should be good.

Always a hit in my house! Sometimes, I switch it up with a little Italian sausage or zucchini. YUM!

This recipe has a major hole in it, which I did not notice until after I'd started. The ingredient list calls for one 28-oz jar of sauce. 28 oz is three and a half cups, which is the standard size most stores sell. The recipe itself calls for four and a half cups of sauce total. I think the author added an extra layer, which may also spread the cheese mixture thin. I had to improvise the top layer of sauce. I hope it turns out but it added significant time and effort to an "easy" recipe.

I bought this "no boil" pasta by accident from my online grocer. I was skeptic, but I went ahead and tried it. To my surprise my lasagna came out perfect! I make my own sauce, so I can't comment on that, but the noodles & consistency came out great. I did cover the pan for about half of the bake time and I also used extra sauce. Also, I used a 9x9x2 inch pan, so I only had room to layer 2 times. Although the noodles did expand, it was mostly in thickness. They didn't get as long in length as I expected. (probably a good thing with this size pan)<br/><br/>Thank you for this article and all of the replies. Without them, not sure I would have tried this.

I made this for Christmas dinner and it was fantastic! I had no boil noodles from Aldi on hand, so I used those. The recipe only called for 1 28 oz jar of sauce but the directions called for so many cups of sauce to be used on the bottom and in the layers that I ended up using a 2nd jar of sauce just to have enough. I also used an Italian blend shredded cheese and put dried parsley and Italian seasoning in between 2 of the layers. My son said it was the best lasagna he's ever had. (I have a deep dish 9 x 13 pan that I make lasagna in and it works great. No worries about the pan being deep enough to hold all those layers and spilling over in the oven. There was not a lot of room left at the top so I was very glad I made it in that!)

Fiddlesticks! I have no luck with these no-bake noodles - this was my second attempt, I followed the recipe precisely and, again, the noodles are crunchy. Geez! I guess it's a good thing I've got a couple of casseroles in the freezer. I'm wondering if I should have let the noodles soak in warm water for five minutes or so before incorporating them - I seriously considered it but then figured that last time I'd just been unlikely or imprecise.
