this is great and worked out very well for us. I used whole wheat lasagna noodles but otherwise made as directed for a very good and tasty dinner. Thanks for sharing!

I can't believe such a classic oven dish turned out so well in the microwave. I used ground veal, my own tomato sauce, fresh basil, a mix of ricotta & cottage cheese, and fresh sheets of lasagna. It's easy to prepare & the kitchen stays cool. Thanks for a great recipe.

Wow! I had some cottage cheese that I had to use. (Obviously I subbed it for the ricotta.) I also have a Pampered Chef deep covered baker that I wanted to try a new recipe with. Considering at 5:30 I had no clue what we were having for dinner... this was literally thrown together in minutes. (I even had to thaw frozen meat!.) Steamed some squash/zucchini for a side and added a wheat roll. Tastes like I slaved over it. Thank you! Will make this again for sure!
