    This was incredible in more ways than one! So, so convenient PLUS delicious. I cannot believe how great it turned out and that the noodles were perfectly done (I was worried about that)! I hate boiling lasagna noodles...they always stick and fall apart, plus they are hard to work with. I have 2 is that I added some salt, pepper and Italian Seasoning to the cheese mixture and it had a great flavor. Another is when you buy your mozzarella cheese, do not get fancy finely shredded. That is what I did and the top got a little too brown (which I personally liked :). I am sure if I had regular shredded cheese, it would not have browned so quickly. Oh, I also used ricotta instead of cottage cheese, because we prefer it. This is a definite keeper and I will not make lasagna any other way from now on. P.S. This was not meatless for us, as I used Prego Mini Meatball spaghetti sauce!

    Was very easy to make and loved the additions to the cheese that Karen, Oct 13 posted =P I did cut back on the sauce by only using 24 oz, but kept everything else the same. The flavoring was still wonderful. It is a very tasty recipe and very simple! I covered my pan with aluminum foil until the last 30 minutes of cooking. My cheese came out perfect =) Thanks for such a wonderful meal!

    I agree with the other reviewers that it was a little too saucy and the cheese was overcooked on top. I peeled the top layer of mozzarella off and then sprinkled a fresh layer on top to melt again. I will try this again with an extra layer of 3 noodles. The onions and garlic added to the spaghetti sauce make this sauce taste delicious. My kids said it was "too" cheesy, but I loved all the cheese.

    This was good!!! Used Prego chunky vegetable spaghetti sauce.The last twenty minutes I covered with foil because cheese was turning a little brown, came out perfect.


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
