This is my go to recipe for lasagna! I had to sign into my old iCloud account just to find this specific recipe. It’s so simple but yet so flavorful. Everybody loves it when I make it, doesn’t disappoint!

So so good! Make sure you set aside a good amount of time to prep and cook! I made the mistake of starting cooking later in the evening and it was not ready until like 10pm.😂

First lasagna I’ve ever made. Easy enough. I added spinach to mine, turned out well. I think next time I may double the cheese layer, just personal taste.

Love it!!! Added an egg to the ricotta mixture, roasted a whole bulb of garlic for the tomato sauce, did 1/2 beef 1/2 mild Italian sausage, and put fresh sliced mozzarella on top.

This recipe is one of the best lasagna recipes I have ever made. I made a few changes based on what I had in my pantry and fridge. I used sliced Mozzerella cheese on top of each cheese layer ( I didn’t have enough shredded mozzarella cheese. I also used 1 can regular tomato sauce and 1 seasoned with garlic, basil,& oregano . I also added ground veal and pork to my mixture. These changes elevated the recipe in my opinion.

Turned out awesome with plenty for leftovers. I did kick it up a bit by adding red pepper chilli flakes. Next time I think i’ll use sweet sausage instead of beef.

Amazing! Super good cheese spread. I had a few changes if you want to try it. I added 8oz sliced mushroom (with meat) I also threw in 1 jalapeño whole with all seeds. There was 0 out of 10 heat but these two additions took this dish to the next level. I also put in thinly sliced fresh mozzarella (pat dry it). I added it on top of the chess spread and layered noodles over. Since I added fresh mozzarella on top of the cheese spread I removed the grated mozzarella from the cheese spread mixture. I would definitely make this again!

amazing! i added an extra cup of ricotta/mozzarella mix and used half of the suggested sugar amount. onions need to be caramelized before adding all the other stuff. for tomato sauce, i used marinara. overall, it took 4 hours from start to finish, so i recommend timing it out for at least four and a half before serving.

I haven’t made a Lasagna in years, but set this recipe aside for a snowy day like today. Was delicious! Easy recipe to follow. The only negative was that my top layer was a little too done, but that’s on me not taking it out a little before the time was up; I was afraid of taking it out too soon. Will definitely make again & adjust the timing.

Family said is was the “best” I’ve ever made. This one’s a keeper. I added fresh spinach and used Italian sausage instead of ground beef. Excellent tip on letting the lasagna sit for 20 minutes.

So amazing! Didn’t have canned diced tomatoes so I had to make my own which was surprisingly easy and way more flavourful.
