Excellent!! I loved not having to boil the noodles in advance. I used Hot Italian sausage, added mushrooms and onionsto the sauce, used fresh baby spinach and used pepper jack cheese. With just two of us, I put 3 dinners in the freezer. This is the lasagne recipe I've been looking for! thank you.
I used Italian sausge and 1 quart of my homemade tomato sauce. I doubled the amount of fresh spinach to 4 cups. I just chopped it up and added it to the other ingredients. I love the fact that you don't need to precook it. The addition of mushrooms suggested in one of the other reviews sounds like a good idea. I think the only other change I made was to use about 1/2 cup of Parmesan on top. It was very quick and easy to prepare and we loved the finished result.
I added a can of sliced mushrooms to my sauce and cut the spinach about in half. I also used cottage cheese because I was out of riccota...we all loved it!!! I guess the spinach is a personal preference since the above reviewer added more to hers! :)
This was my first time eating or cooking lasagna with spinach. It was very good. My whole family liked it a lot. I used half Italian sausage and half Hamburger. I also used a bit more spinach then it called for and more cheese. Noodles actually were done!!
THIS IS THE BEST LASAGNA I've ever made or eaten! And I've tried a lot. Soooo easy to put together - now I did the layering a bit different. I used three dry noodles, 1/3 sauce, 1/2 cheese, then three dry noodles, 1/3 sauce, 1/2 cheese, then three dry noodles and remaining 1/3 sauce. I did this because I couldn't fit 1/2 the noodles on the bottom as suggested. Anyways - will throw out all other recipes. Loved the way it stood up together when cut and sneaked the spinach in and I used Jimmy Dean regular sausage and that gave fabulous flavor. Thanks.
Similar to lasagna I've made for years. Spinach (or kale) is a natural addition and adds nutrition. Adding diced tomatoes to the sauce gives a nice texture. I suggest adding chopped mushrooms and green pepper to the sauce. Vary things by using ground beef or your favorite Italian sausage (or a mix). Rather than adding water I quickly rinse the noodles in cold water as I assemble the lasagna -- provides plenty of liquid for the pasta. My major change is to use more cheese than the recipe calls for -- both in the filling and on top. After removing the foil, I put at least a cup of mozzarella and a more generous amount of parmesan or Italian blend on top. VARIATION (that takes more work) is to cook lasagna and then roll the cheese filling inside. Place in baking dish, pour sauce over, and bake as above. Tastes the same but the presentation is a bit different.
This is an excellent lasagne recipe. I sautéed ground pork with Serrano peppers and onions and it was delicious. Now, this is one of my favorite lasagne dinners. Thank you!!
