This was SO tasty. I used London Broil (cooked on warm in the crockpot all day), which is a bit dry, but PERFECT for this. Del Monte Traditional spaghetti sauce, skim ricotta, and 2% Mexican cheese (Sargento's). Otherwise everything else was the same. I made foil boats since I was using presliced hoagie rolls and didn't want it to spill out. I'm stuffed right now and yet I still want another. Luckily, we ate two of them and there are still two left. I probably could have fit a fifth, if I'd tried. Thank you SO much for this hearty filling recipe!

What a unique way to have lasagne! We made 3 'buns' which were more like hoagies, but no complaints either, lol. 1 hoagie can easily serve 2 people. We used Recipe #255242 for the sauce and fresh mozerella which we sliced and put on the sauce, then mixed the other cheeses together and piled them on top. We forgot to cover loosely with foil, but it was okay, it didn't burn without it and the bread got nice and crusty. This is similar to, but much better than, Stouffer's french bread pizza. Thanks for sharing. :)
