Even though this is not our normal type of meal, we still loved it, and thought it did taste like lasagna. I made some changes though - I halved the meat since we aren't huge meat eaters (and used ground turkey, which we always use), used Ancient Harvest GF pasta (which is a corn quinoa blend and our favorite), subbed more parmesan for the mozzarella, and did not bake it (we knew we would like the texture better and that the taste would remain the same either way). This is true comfort food; we also appreciated lasagna flavor in a fraction of the time.
This is edible. I didn't get the aluminum foil at all, although I followed directions and used it, it was a waste of money. Also, labeling this "lasagne" while using shells is also a bit out of the norm. Thanks, katii, for putting out there a very esoteric pasta recipe. Made for Bargain Basement tag game.
