Yum! tasted just like my my mom's lasagna without all the work. I used all mozzarella because I was out of Parmesan cheese but it was still delicious!
Pretty good! Will make again! I used 15 oz ricotta instead of cottage. I will use less ricotta next time. I also used italian seasonings, basil, oregano seasonings. Used turkey instead of ground beef. Just as great! Couldn't even tell it was turkey! Yummy recipe!
This did very well with my family. I picked up the wrong kind of noodles and was looking for a way to use them up. This recipe fit the bill. I did alter it with more seasoning: basil, oregano, black pepper, minced onions and extra garlic powder. I also added some mushrooms. I will be adding this to my favorites to make again.
