    I loved this, though I changed some things. I didn't have seasonings other than garlic, so I skipped those. I also didn't have eggs, so those were out. But I did have the rest. :D I love cheese so I used a lot of mozzarella. I also just chopped up Italian sausage from the store. For the top I put the sauce, a half the cheese mixture ( I only put half on the bottom), a layer of mozz. cheese and then the parmesan. It turned out great.

    I prepared this tonight to freeze, using two 8 x 8 Glad Ovenware containers. I was not going to rate this till I had reheated it for a meal, but I could not resist getting a spoonful out of the corner of one container! LOL! Okay, nobody will notice! LOL! This is the first time I have ever prepared lasagna and I must say this recipe is a breeze to follow and really not very time consuming! I followed the recipe as directed, dividing it up between two smaller containers (as stated above). The spoonful I had was delicious. I cannot wait to have this for a meal, but for now they are going in the freezer. I used "full-strength" cream cheese and ricotta cheese. If I were to do anything different, it may would be to use double the mozzarella. I liked it because the seasoning is not overpowering, just complimentary. I will try to update this review once I have reheated it and let you know how it turns out after being frozen. Thanks LorenLou!
