I've made a lot of lasagna in my life (so far) and this one is the best! While it's fun to play around with the basic recipe, making this one exactly as stated has earned me compliments like "the best lasagna I've ever had!" I had the old recipe cut out from the the box for years and years, but lost it. THANK YOU for saving this and posting it here...

This is a terrific recipe! I'm not one for cooking a lot, but this is a simple recipe that even I feel comfortable making. I added more spices than the original recipe called for -- more parsley, salt, pepper, fresh garlic, and garlic powder. I also used the Barilla lasagne noodles that you don't have to boil. You just put them in and the moisture from the sauce softens them. This worked out extremely well. The lasagna was tasty, had good texture, and was a real hit! (and it tasted even better served as leftovers.) Thanks Keen5!

This is the recipe my mother used for lasagna for years, I couldn't tell you how many. I'd somehow lost it so I decided to Google and try to find it because I remembered that she, like your mother, had gotten it from the back of a box of Mueller's pasta. This is such a delicious, easy recipe that everyone in my family loves. Thank you so much for posting it!

Everyone loved this. I will be making again. I did use extra cheese and mixed the ricotta and parm. cheese together and added 2 beat eggs to that. I think I ended up using more lasagna noodles too. Thank you so much for a great recipe.

This was great. The only changes I made were: I used only 1 cup of water in the sauce instead of 2, and I doubled the mozzarella. Thanks keen5. I will be making this again.

This was a delicious lasagne recipe. I used a 28 oz. can of crushed tomatoes because I used no-boil noodles and needed a little more moisture. Thanks keen5!

This was very good. My family was VERY impressed. I did add a touch of basil to the sauce, and used crushed garlic. Will make over and over!

Great Lasagne! I have made this twice already and it is a hit at our house. Both times I have made it during my once a month cooking blitz and stored it in the freezer for a later day. This recipe is easy to double to make two at one time. Thanks for sharing!

a very tasty and easy recipe, I went for pasta sheets that didn't need pre cooked and the juices from the sauce are enough to cook them. This is definately a recipe I'll use again and was a hit at home.
