Incredible! I felt so proud to have made a lasagna that was not in a box and tasted amazing! Family loved it as well choosing to eat leftovers for dinner the next night. I used the honey idea mainly because I did not have the corn syrup.
My first time making lasagna, even my picky husband luved it. Added ground turkey and ketchup to it. Will make it again next week, there were hardly any leftovers:(!!!! Thank you for sharing, hopefully you have more to share:)
This was my first lasagna ever and it was SO easy and delicious!! I let the sauce simmer in the crock pot as instructed (used 2 cloves garlic instead) and it was just incredible. I would use a little more ricotta. Tried the 9 tbsp idea and ended up short on the last layer. Otherwise fantastic!!
Made for celebration dinner at work. Cut down on the ricotta and used low mozzarella. Otherwise followed recipe for one pan. Added diced bell pepper and 1/4 onion to the top layer of the second one. Both were well received and I am planning to make it again for the next family gathering.
Great recipe!! Made this last night and substituted ground turkey for italian sausage. I also used 15 oz cans of sauce and it turned out amazing! I will definitely be making again, very easy too!
We just finished eating this lasagna and man was it good! I told my husband it was healthy too and he said it tasted as good as any regular lasagna he has had. He is the cook of the house so coming from him, that is saying a lot! I added a little more garlic but other than that, no changes!
Delicious! Made it for dinner last night w/2 pounds of Italian sausage and part skim ricotta which bumped up calories per piece to 314. Will definitely make this again. My family LOVED it. Also used 2 -26 oz cans of Hunts zesty spicy sauce. Highly recommend.
