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.
Super good and super easy to make! Highly recommend it.
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.
