    Fantastic. I would definitely make this again. I used homemade lasagna noodles made in my Philips pasta machine. It takes time but it’s worth every minute

    This is absolutely amazing!! I followed everything except red pepper flakes and mint but only cause I didn’t have any on hand! Made a nice salad to go on the side and it felt like I was at Olive Garden! Definitely adding this recipe to my book!

    Most excellent, takes extra 1/2 hour to cook if refrigerated before hand. So good my husband had to go back for thirds!

    Used this recipe to make lasagna for the first time and it was AMAZING! I used lean ground Turkey instead and it was still so yummy!

    Used this recipe having never made lasagna before and everyone absolutely loved it. I found that it didn't need that last layer of noodles and tomato sauce so I leave if off. Will definitely be making this again.

    Turned out well and this was my first time making lasagna! I will make it again, with some minor changes. Just my preference, I will use less oregano.

    First time making lasagna, and it was amazing!!!! Everyone was impressed by this dish! So tasty! Followed everything to a T but forgot the eggs (oops duh I know) but honestly it made no difference at all! This dish was awesome! I used fresh parsley and basil from my garden. I even used part skim milk ricotta cheese and reduced fat mozzarella-No one could tell the difference!! I will definitely be making this again in the near future !!!!! Highly recommend! It’s also enough for a large crowd or great for many yummy leftovers! Thanks for this recipe xx

    “No chef” but today I’m feeling like one! Turned out absolutely amazing. I followed the directions to the “T”... minus the sausages— I used Polska Kielbasa sausages instead. Very flavorful!

    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.
