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.
This lasagna is great. We loved the different cheeses in it. Fairly easy to make. Thanks for posting.
I thought this lasagna was sooo delicious. I read all the reviews prior to making it. I used 14 1/2 oz of tomatoes and tomatoe sauce. That is the size cans. I also mixed the cream cheese into the meat mixture. I chose cottage cheese over ricotta this time. I also put in more garlic. Everything else the same. But this was absolutely delicious. Everyone truly enjoyed it. I will be making this lasagna again. I found it fun and easy to make. It's great because it can be made ahead of time. I also baked it for one hour covered. Such perfection if I say so myself.
This lasagna is absolutely amazing. I added italian turkey sausage to the ground beef and I used ricotta cheese. This was definitely a hit in my family.
this is now my go to Lasagna recipe. Absolutely incredible!
to die for lasagna, next time i'll try some of the additions that were suggested
Very very good, I added 1 cup chopped zucchini. It is great as leftovers too!
I've been waiting for an opportunity to make this and my dinner party was just the occasion. I made the sauce two days in advance. I had a moment of panic when I checked on the lasagna and it was bubbling up runny juices (and kicked myself that I didn't add the extra cornstarch and water)but upon resting it did absorb and turned out to have a perfect texture! This cut great and surprisingly didn't taste too rich (with all that cheese) but a perfect blend.It's different from other lasagnas in that it does not taste too thick with tomato sauce. My guests loved it and I knew I had chosen a perfect dish. This lasagna was to die for and the only one I'll be making from now on.Thanks for posting Pianolady! UPDATE: this freezes great (thaw in fridge. before baking) and no-boil noodles work just as good! Roxygirl
