      I've been making this recipe for a while now. I saw Ina make it on her show and was convinced to try it. This is absolutely the best lasagna I've ever had; it's my go-to now. It sounds a bit like a novelty item with the goat cheese and turkey sausage, but it still has a very traditional taste, and everything is so complimentary. If you're unsure about the goat cheese, don't worry. It doesn't dominate the flavor of the dish, but rather lends a very nice and delicious creaminess. You must try this recipe!

      WOW! This is one of the best lasagna recipes I've ever tried. It is time-consuming, but totally worth it on a weekend. We used turkey kielbasa because that's what we had, but I think it would be even better with Italian sausage, as specified. We also threw in some chopped fresh tomatoes that needed to be used up, but it was runny as a result. I think we'll add more goat cheese next time. We love goat cheese and you can barely taste it as written - but it's still spectacular. Thank you for posting this!!!
