    TheDancingCook's Note:

    For those who hate Ricotta Cheese but still want to eat lasagna. A real kid pleaser! I grew up on this, and this is the way my family likes it. (I order lasagna with Ricotta when eating out!) But I do love it this way too! Please feel free to adjust ingredients (veggies, spices, meat) according to your family's preference.

      This was very good. The veleveeta melts very creamily (I would never have thought to put velveeta in a lasagna!) and although I like ricotta in my lasagna, this was a great recipe for us because I wanted lasagana but we are out of ricotta! So easy too because you don't have to cook the noodles first. Thanks for a great idea!

      My sons do not care for ricotta - so I was glad to find a good recipe that was cheesy and tasty. I didn't have velveeta, so I used some shredded 4 cheese instead. It came out delicious! Thanks.

      I made this for our Sunday family dinner, and everyone seemed to enjoy it. The Velveeta seemed a bit rich in this Lasagna, but other than that, my family thought this was very good, and I look forward to making it again.
