      I made the recipe as directed, and I give that method 3 stars. I experimented with different pasta sauces and discovered they have a significant effect on how this recipe tastes; so test a few before one decides how much they like this recipe. So far the pasta sauce I liked best for this recipe is Kroger Tomato and Basil Pasta Sauce. If one likes the lasagna to be spicy add some crushed red pepper to the pasta sauce, to taste.<br/><br/>I made 3 simple changes that got this recipe to 4.5 stars.<br/><br/>>First, I added 222 g of hamburger (2 frozen hamburger patties) to the sauce. Preparing the hamburger took 2 easy steps:<br/>1) Place the frozen hamburger patties on a microwave safe rack and microwave on high for 7 minutes (or until the center of each patty is at least 74°C). If not using a microwave safe rack, drain the fat from the cooked hamburger patties.<br/>2) Grind the hamburger. Using a food processor with the slicing blade, slice the hamburger patties. Next, grind the hamburger to a coarse texture using the multipurpose blade.<br/><br/>Second, I changed the cottage cheese to Kroger Part-skim Ricotta cheese.<br/><br/>Third, I did not cover the baking dish with foil during baking; which make a delicious, crispy, slightly toasted cheese crust on the top.<br/><br/>I found that I could quickly prepare (boil) dry lasagna noodles by microwaving them on high in water for 9 minutes. They come out undercooked to exactly the correct firmness so that they become al dente while baking, from absorbing the water in the pasta sauce. The first time I made this recipe, I cooked the dry pasta until it was al dente, before placing it in the baking dish, and the lasagna came out runny.<br/><br/>I love how easy this recipe is to make fresh lasagna. If I were to rate this recipe alone on how easy it is to make, I would give it a very solid 5 stars.

      We really enjoyed this simple lasagna. I made it as directed but added some Italian seasoning to the sauce. Thanks for sharing this quick tasty recipe. Made for Name That Ingredient Tag.

      This was very easy to prepare and turned out good except my noodles were a little on the mushy side and I cooked it a total of 50 minutes. I will make this again for sure when we want lasagna but don't have much time. I will add a few spices and try cooking it 45 minutes instead. Thanks for the recipe!
