    this recipe makes a mean lasagna! i added sliced zucchini, fresh mushrooms and used 4 cups shredded mozz. i didn't have fresh parsley so i substituted with 3 1/2 tablespoons dried. it turned out so yummy! it's time consuming but the end result is well worth the effort. i will be making this again, and again, and again!! thanks for sharing...  -  26 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    great lasagna! I love that it has sausage instead of ground much more interesting. For anyone who has not tried this, I did and it worked great - instead of boiling the noodles, I laid them on a sheet pan and poured boiling water over them while I was making the red sauce (btw, I like diced tomatoes, so I substitued those instead of tom. sauce and water as called for). Since the dish bakes for 45 minutes, the noodles came out perfect!! So much easier than boiling the noodles.  -  14 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this for Christmas dinner for my family and they raved about it! Even those who don't like lasagna couldn't help but ask for seconds. I added some extra sausage for the meat lovers. This is now my favorite lasagna recipe!  -  02 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
