    Great recipe! Its a great alternative to lasagna, which is good for me because I'm such a pasta lover. Its a little gooey at first, but if you let it cool off a little first, it turns out great. We will add this to our dinner menu more often. Try using Jennie-O Italian Seasoned Turkey, its great! :) - 1/20/09

    This was really delicious. We ate leftovers for the next two days. I substituted ground turkey, egg whites and used a little less water than called for to keep it from getting too soupy. My boyfriend already wants me to make it again next week! - 2/2/09

    I made this with no-fat ricotta, added mushrooms and used more ground turkey than beef. It was great. Even better the second day. - 1/17/09

    Easy to make. I used Italian diced tomatoes so didn't need to use extra Italian seasonings. Used zucchini instead of noodles, so didn't add water. Decreased cottage cheese by 1/4 cup and used mozzarella instead. Used 6 cheese mix for parmesan. Would use tomato paste for sauce if using zucchini. - 11/25/08

    This was AMAZING!!! Seriously, you would never, ever think it was low cal. My husband said this was the best calorie-conscious meal I've EVER prepared!

    I used ground turkey instead of beef, and 2 cups fat free mozzarella in place of cottage cheese. It still came out to only 263 cals! - 1/20/09

    This was soooo easy to prepare~ similar to making hamburger helper, IMO, but a million times better. I did substitute ground turkey for the beef and part skim ricotta for the cottage cheese. The flavor is great and the cost to prepare is relatively inexpensive. Love it!! - 3/15/09

    I made this recipe with ground venison last night. Instead of broken up lasagna noodles I used whole wheat egg noodles. Use a full can of tomato sauce too, and the consistency was perfect. Pasta turned out perfect and the taste was phenomenal. Thanks for the excellent recipe! - 2/12/09

    This was really, really great! It was especially nice since I am a carb/protein ratio counter. It was a perfect mix of both. This will become a household staple. Thank you! - 3/23/09

    I loved the ease and convenience of this recipe. Thanks!
    Since we like our sauce a little sweeter, I added 1T of Equal. I also added mushrooms and used 1/2 an onion and ground turkey.
    I baked in the oven for 10 min @ 400 degrees after I sprinkled with cheese. - 2/14/09

    This was GREAT! So much easier than traditional lasagna and absolutely delicious! My 14 y.o. said, "This is diet food?!" Definitely being added to my meal rotation. I used farfalle (bow ties) instead of broken lasagna, but was otherwise faithful to the recipe. I might add mushrooms next time. :) - 5/22/09

    made this with turkey sausage and added red pepper flakes; still thought it was a tad bland.

    I have never made a skillet lasagna before; it may have been easier to just cook the noodles seperately. Mine stuck together, and I had to add water during cooking because too much boiled off. - 2/5/09

    Thank you for sharing this recipe! It inspired me to make something similar. Both hubby and I loved what this recipe inspired! I omitted the egg. The egg might have been a binder but mine didn't need it. I'll use Riccota next time instead of Cottage Cheese didn't melt very well. Thanks! - 2/11/09

    OMG SO AMAZING!!!! I loved it, I am a huge Italian foodie and that usually kills my diet. Also it makes SO MUCH! A serving was really filling I loved every bite of it. My husband also loved it a lot and he isn't easy to please when it comes to healthy foods, he loves his sausages and cheeses! - 5/27/09
