    Well, it tasted great but it did use a lot of ingredients (very large quantities) and have a fair bit of work involved!!! Unfortunately as I was making it, the lasange sheets stuck together and so I was left with shredded bits of lasange sheets!!! Other than my mistake it turned out great and was enjoyed by all of family. Very filling  -  19 Jul 2014


    This recipe used too much Italian Seasoning, and it was unclear about what sauce to use in the bottom of the pan. Do you use the sauce that has the meat mixed in it, or do you get some plain sauce to pour in the bottom of the pan.  -  12 Dec 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We love this! This is one with which I don't tinker a bit. I follow it exactly and it always gets rave reviews. I've been making it as my exclusive lasagna for over a year now with never-fail results.  -  02 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
