    This came out amazing! Everyone loved it. Next time I will definitely add more of the ricotta cheese mixture as it was phenomenal :)

    I added about 3 tablespoons of brown sugar to my meat sauce and I ran out of mozzarella so I added some Colby Jack on top. I only used 1 cup of tomato sauce in the bottom.

    Delicious lasagna! I used sour cream and herb cream cheese instead of the ricotta and added a bit less salt. We loved it!

    Good overall format but the sauce seemed a little lackluster. Still looking for a great lasagna recipe.

    This lasagna is excellent! We have used their sauce recipe which is amazing when we have time and used a jar when we didn't. We have also done it with and without the sliced mozzarella, used dry and instant noodles, and used a variety of combinations of meats. It is always delicious! Comfort food at its best.

    It turned out great. It was my best lasagne ever. I only used ground beef, because my husband doesn't eat pork. I also omitted the mint. I felt it wasn't necessary and I used mixed italian cheeses and a cheddar/mozzarella mix.

    It was really easy to make and delicious. I substituted the sausage meat with ground meat because that’s what I had but still it was excellent. Definitely would make it again!

    Excellent recipe, best ever. Use fresh lasagna even better

    Excellent recipe, best I’ve found. Delicious lasagna. It needs a little more salt in the sauce (purely my opinion), but no other adjustments necessary.

    Very heavy by time it goes in oven but delicious!

    Excellent! Made it with ground turkey instead of ground beef and sausage as a friend does not eat beef or pork. I also doubled the fresh basil. This definitely is a crowd pleaser!
