Since I do not eat pork I used ground turkey breast. I used the no boil noodles and they turned out great and saved time. I also used tomatoes in basil & garlic. As such I omitted the whole basil and substituted in some oregano. It turned out WONDERFUL! Using the cheese slices really worked out well as the ricotta mixture was much easier to spread over the noodles. My DH just loved it. It also heated up the next day very well. Thank you!
its hard to find good lasagna...I never made lasagna before this...this recipe was easy to follow and very good...I added a teaspoon of parsley and I used the ricotta cheese and the parmesan cheese when I made mine...everyone loved it and I will be making it again...thanks for sharing this recipe!!!
Made this and it was great! I used 2 cans of fire roasted diced tomatoes, and as simmering the sauce added 2 full can of water, as I never cook my noodles anymore! I also put a ladle of sauce, then start with the noodles to keep the noodles from sticking to the pan. I also used fresh basil and parsley instead of the dried. I baked at 350 for about 45 minutes. It was a hit!!
I've made lasagna a couple of times before this and had issues with it being sloppy, but this turned out super. I made a couple of modifications... For some reason I thought the recipe called for ground beef, so I browned up about a pound. So I used five Italian sausages and about one pound of meat. I also did not have three cups of cottage cheese so I only used two. Anyway - it turned out super good. Probably close to the best lasagna I've ever had. Thanks for posting.
My first try at homemade lasagna and OMG!!!! Loved loved loved this recipe! I made this last week as written, word for word, for a family gathering(10ppl, including kids) and everyone loved it. I made this again last night, only this time it was only for 4 ppl so I halved the recipe. We didn't have enough lasagna noodles...so I used lasagna for the bottom layer and fettucine for the rest. Also I used about 1 lb or so of homemade tomato spaghetti sauce instead of the tomatoes and tomato paste. The second one, as altered as it was, turned out great too!! But I have to say I loved your original recipe and I will definately be using this recipe again. Plz say thank you to your father and give him a big kiss on the cheek for me!! And thank you Nurbel for posting(:
Sauce is very, very good. Next time I make recipe, however, I will use shredded cheese rather than sliced-shredded melts better, especially on top.
The sauce on this was the best. I made a point to use plum tomatoes, which make the best sauce in my opinion. Also used spicy Italian sausage, and loved that, although my son said that made it too hot. Kudos should go to Miss Diggy for the picture, because that is what caught my eye to try this in the first place.
Awesome recipe. Kudos to you and your dad for this wonderful and now permentant addition to my household meal roster.. my son who is not a big pasta fan came back for 3 servings of this lasagna and then asked when I was making it again
I hadn't made lasagne for years, but I just had a "hankering" for it and chose your recipe and I'm glad I did. I made four layers and topped it all with shredded garlic asiago cheese. Very delicious and quite easy to make. Thanks for submitting this.
