This was an easy to do recipe, I omitted the sausage b/c I hate sausage, and I added a package of cream cheese (1/3 less fat, not that it really helps in the calorie/fat area) and it was creamy and amazing! The only thing I wish I could change is the sauce; I hate onions and all of the spaghetti sauces come packed with them. :( other than that, this is my go to recipe for lasagna, thanks!

Prepared for Spring PAC 2008 This is extremely easy for lasagna. No special trips to the store. Very good and cheesy! I doubled the recipe and froze the second half. Sweetie said "this is a keeper". I agree! Thanks saracrocker. :)
