I loved how simple this recipe is (I'm a picky eater), you can always add things to suite your taste. I cheated and used about 34 oz of prepared spaghetti sauce and added 1/2 cup water. I dipped the lasangna noodles in water for a few seconds before adding to the pot. I also added the topping of mozzarella in the last 30 min.;that way it wouldn't completely melt away. Hard to serve neatly from the pot, but once I managed (with help) to turn the pot over onto a large bowl and after it sat it held together fine. I've made it twice and am very happy. Thank You!

Terrific lasagna that doesn't burn or have hard yucky edges. Came out of the crock in wonderful stay together pieces. Great for a crowd. Thanks so much!
