I recently made this recipe for a family get together and it was the most delicious lasgna I have ever made. My whole family was raving about how delicious it was. My hardest critic-(my husband) told me that it was the best lasgna I had ever made! I was so happy to hear that! It was very easy to make, the recipe was easy to follow. Although I did make one adaptation, in the cottage cheese and riccota mixture I bought a package of frozen spinach,thawed and drained off the excess liquid and added that to the cheese mixture. The author of the recipe suggests using sliced mozzarella instead of shredded mozzarella, I did use shredded mozzarella, but next time will use sliced mozzarella, the shredded mozzarella wasn't cheesy enough for my tastes. But the recipe was great overall and would recommend it to others!!!!!!

Great recipe! My husband wanted me to buy, not make lasagna, because I'd never found a recipe he liked...until now. The top noodles were a bit crunchy for my taste but it still tasted good. Used italian sausage & hamburger and used italian seasoning for the basil. Wonderful!

This was really good, but like someone else said, I will cook the noodles first when I make this again. This really filled my 9 X 13 pan and although it ended up running over, it took much longer to bake (for the noodles to be done) than the directions stated. Had the noodles been pre-cooked, I'm sure it would have been finished in the allocated time and possibly wouldn't have boiled over either (I think from the noodles swelling). Thanks for sharing this recipe Mark!

Great Lasagne! I used one 14 oz tin of tomatoes as the meat sauce was looking 'wet' enough after just the one was added. The added egg gave the dish a creamy tasty cheese layer, and I used slices of mozzarella for the layers but grated for on top, I also used fresh lasagne instead of dried. Delicious!

This was the greatest. My entire family loved it. A Little expensive to make but was well worth the money. Also used the sauce on spaghetti and it was delicious. Thank you

Mark this lasagna will replace the one I usually make. It was wonderful. I also cooked the lasagna noodles before hand, used the sliced mozzarella and added a little more parmesan cheese. Just wonderful.

This recipe is awesome. I made it over Thanksgiving weekend when I had company. It was the first time I tried the recipe and it was without a doubt the best lasagna I have ever tasted. Thank you for sharing!!!

Made exactly as written. I did find the sauce a little salty and thought there was a little too much cheese (I know...I never thought I would say that!). My husband LOVED it, however, so I will make it again for sure, just adjusting the salt and cheese to taste. I really liked that the noodles don't have to be cooked first. I would use the sauce for spaghetti or other pasta dishes. Thanks for the recipe!
