      This was excellent and super easy. The only change I made was I used cottage cheese as my ricotta was out of date. I am thankful to have such a delicious meal for a special weeknight dinner. Thanks for sharing. Lisa

      I've been meaning to try this recipe (I get the Kraft Food & Family magazine too) for a while now, and I'm glad I finally did! I used low fat ricotta, oven ready lasagna noodles, and slightly less than 1 lb of meat. Instead of the parsley, I liberally added Italian seasonings (I have this great shaker thing that has 4 separate kinds of Italian seasonings in one container) to the sauce and the ricotta blend. I only had a package of 2 cups of shredded mozzarella, so I used the amount called for in the ricotta mixture, and just used the rest on top, and it was just fine. So, I suppose I should talk about how it tastes, huh? It's AWESOME. I was amazed that my first time making lasagna turned out so tasty! I didn't want to wait the 15 minutes to cut it, but I did. It comes out of the pan very easily. I stored the leftovers in the pan, with the foil lid used for baking covering the top. Bad idea. The acid ate through the foil! There were only a couple of places where the foil was touching the food, so I just cut those tiny pieces away, and then cut the rest up and stored it in a plastic container, which is what I suggest, because even my metal 13x9 pan was getting weird from the acid, I had to scrub it with comet to get the discoloration off. So! Make this, it's delicious! Just take the leftovers out of the pan to store them. :)
