      I made this for my boyfriend last night and he loved it. It was my first time making lasagna, so there are a few things I learned in the process. First, the sauce was runny, so I do recommend the cornstarch and water. Second, I had to turn up the heat the last five minutes to get the crusty top that I like. I recommend letting it set for 20 min after it comes out of the oven, because that let it set. Overall great lasagna though!

      Sorry, I just did not like this. Something about the texture and taste of cream chese in lasagna, was terribly off-putting, almost nauseating and I could not eat it. And I usually love cream chese. Just not it this lasagna, apparently.

      Seven different types of cheese seems a completely unneccessary complication.
