  1. OMG..... I have a 4 month old, and a 8 yr old. Time is of the essance....this was fast, easy and most important delicious. Thank you.
  2. My family really liked this. Two of us don't like the ricotta or cottage cheese in most lasagnas. Two of us kind of missed that part, but still liked it. I made this even easier by using 3 Tbs. dehydrated minced onion & 3 Tbs. water for that layer. The cooking time was on the money for me. Thanks for posting.
  3. This was quick. easy and tasty. I was leary about putting raw hamburg in but it cooked up fine. I used onion powder instead of onions because of my kids. Baking time for me really needed adjusted though. I let it cook for an hour before checking and it was already done and a bit burnt. It was still good and will definately make again. I also had a jar 26 ounce jar of spaghetti sauce so added an 8 ounce can of tomato sauce. Made for Fall PAC 2007.
  4. I used a 25 oz jar of organic spaghetti sauce, so I added 1 (8 oz) can of tomato sauce for the bottom layer. Since we don't eat beef, I used a 12 oz package of soy crumbles and added 1/2 C of TVP (soaked in water). I bought a pkg of 11 thin slices of mozzarrella and felt it could really use 12. Even with the meat sub., my kids devoured the lasagna! In my case, next time, I would reduce the second bake to 20 minutes, but that may not apply for a recipe with the raw ground beef. It got a little too brown. Although I did make it earlier in the day and it sat for a few hours. This is going in my recipes! Thanks!
