Yum! This dish is easy, versatile, and crowd-pleasing. I added a pound of Italian-seasoned ground turkey, and everyone liked it. I think it would also be great with any other ground meat or even some spinach or other veggies added. Thanks!
This was great!! I did add hamburger (gotta have meat in my lasagna). I think what I loved about this so much was that it wasn't runny. So many lasagna recipes I make turn out runny, and fall apart when I'm trying to get it out of the pan. This recipe did not disappoint. It came out of the pan easily, and tasted delicious for being so simple. Thanks!
Super easy and delicious -- this recipe is now a regular in our "rotation" of meals. I have fallen into the habit of cooking for 2 - 3 days, then having a "leftover" day where we eat up all the "extra's" - so in making this dish, I doubled everything except the pasta - doing 3 very thick layers, and added about 1 pound of ground beef I cooked with McCormick's Italian spices. (I've now taken to making this often enough that when ground beef is on sale, I cook up three pounds with the Italian spices, use 1/3 that day and freeze the remaining 2 - one pound portions to keep prep time down.) My dish is a little larger than 9 x 13, and is about 3" deep -- so I cook three extra noodles and add them where the others run short. I also used 50/50 mozzarella and a Italian Five cheese blend. I used Ragu traditional sauce and my DH and 5 kids could not be more happy with the results -- and I love the 10 minute prep time!!! Thanks MizzNezz!!!
PS- I'm a sucker for meat sauce, so I usually make my own for this lasagna. But I found a jarred brand called Mid's and I absolutely love it. I usually mix their regular meat sauce with their italian sausage meat sauce for this dish when I'm in a rush. It's definitely the best sauce from a jar I've ever had.
This was a good, very easy version of lasagna. I enjoyed the flavor and the prep could not be simpler. I made no changes to the recipe at all, other than covering it halfway through as the cheese was starting to over brown. For my tastes, it was a bit more dry that I would have liked. Next time I would add more sauce and cook it for less time.
A really easy and delicious lasagna! I used homemade pasta sauce and then added in about a pound of cooked ground beef. I think I used around 3 1/2 - 4 cups of sauce. I also used ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese. I used a whole 15 ounce container (though it did seem to be the right amount). Finally halfway through I covered it with aluminum foil so that the noodles were still tender and the cheese didn't overcook. Served this with sparkling juice, garlic bread, and salad. Thanks for this simple and great recipe!
I almost....almost went with another more complicated lasagna recipe for our Christmas lasagna and I'm so infinitely glad that I didn't! Made a few changes on the fly like adding 1/2 lb each ground beef and sausage, using 12 noodles instead of 9 (4 across) and added a touch of milk to the cottage cheese mixture since it seemed a little dry. I made this the night before and baked the day of...took me 45 and I covered with foil after the first 30....I can't believe I made a lasagna this tasty from such simple ingredients! Now on to the leftovers!
Very yummy recipe.My husband likes lasagna but with many time taking recipes out there I get intimidated so when I saw this one I knew I had to try it.I am so glad I did!Next time I will add a bit of ground beef and onion as other users did.Thanks you for such a good and quick recipe.
Very, Very good! The only adjustment we made was using Ricotta Cheese instead of Cottage and it turned out beautifully. No need to ever put a lot of work into lasagna again. This is simple and is very tasty. Give it a try! And the noodles are just as done as if you had cooked them. Perfect consistency. Thanks for posting!
Very good! And my batch turned out to have only 281 calories. Thanks for sharing!
