    This WAS an easy and quick recipe for your basic lasagna, HOWEVER, I did alter it a bit! I added chopped onion and 3 cloves minced fresh garlic to the ground beef while it was browning, along with a teaspoon or so of Paula Deen's House Seasoning (Jane's Krazy Mixed Up Salt and pepper would work, too). After the beef was browned, I sauteed a small bag of fresh baby spinach in garlic and olive oil and added it to the layers. I also added the House Seasoning to the cottage cheese mixture and used bottled pasta sauce instead of the other. My picky 5 yr old daughter actually asked for "MORE MASAGNA"! It was flavorful and I was able to sneak some green in for my picky eater! Will definately make this again!  -  02 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used no-boil lasagna noodles which made it even easier!!! My family loved this lasagna - everyone wanted seconds. I did add some basil & oregano to taste and mozzarella cheese melted on top. I also used twice the amount of tomato sauce. I know - sounds like a lot of changes, but isn't that why we read the reviews and rate the recipes. I get a lot of good ideas from the comments. Hope this helps. Very easy and good recipe!!  -  29 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
