My family LOVED this. Tasted just like lasagna but sooooo easy. My BF had asked me to make lasagna but it was too much work for how late it was so I found this recipe. I was a little leary but we figured what the heck. I used ground beef and 15oz ricotta since we like it better. Also I sauteed my beef with 1/2 onion and 5 cloves garlic (we love garlic). I will make this instead of lasagna from now on. Thank you!

I found this to be sooo yummy and so did DS. To the meat i added garlic powder, dried basil and oregano, and dried italian herbs. I then added chopped onions, green pepper and mushrooms. Once cooked, i mixed in mushroom flavoured spaghetti sauce and a little sugar. I kept picking at the meat with the cheese mix while the pasta was cooking and i couldnt wait. It was scrumptious and really satisfying!

It was absoutely yummy. Only exception I made was I used 1 cup of mozzarella instead of 3/4 cup. It really fixed my craving for lasagna without the time comsumption.
