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...
My husband made this one night. It was good, but took a long time. Also, the sausage taste didn't really come out, so it seemed a bit of a waste.
Great, but this would have been a nicer presentation w/out as much sauce. I also used the no-boil lasagna noodles (so easy) so I may have used too much sauce (oops). I used 1-1/2 lbs sweet Italian turkey sausage (less grease) Used 3 big tblsps Italian seasoning + 1 tsp of crushed red pepper flakes. Tip: Rub dried herbs between palms of your hands to release their flavor. I added extra Parm & Mozz & used fresh garlic in ricotta mix. 3 cans of tomato paste seemed awful "heavy" to me so, I used only 1 can with 3 cups additional fresh (peeled/seeded) finely diced tomatoes. You can add water (or beef stock?) if needed. I simmered sauce for 3 hours (w/splatter screen over pot) due to using fresh tomatos. If you can plan ahead: assemble and store (covered) in fridge day before cooking for a stress free company dinner. Leftovers freeze well in foiled wrapped individual serving sizes.
Update: Replaced the 2 cups of sauce on bottom of pan with a coating of olive oil which produced better end results for myself. You can always serve extra sauce on the side if necessary vs a sloppy runny mess.
great lasagna! I love that it has sausage instead of ground beef...so 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.
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!
delicious! I added mushrooms to the meat sauce.
My family really liked this recipe. It takes some time but we were able to make two meals from this. Be sure you are a spinach lover if you decide to use it because I was able to taste it much more than I expected. Delicious!
great and easy lasagna!! I only used 2 cans of tomato paste, omitted the spinach and added fresh sliced mushrooms. I also used the no boil noodles which was alot easier. Must be good because my husband ate a HUGE amount!! Will make again and again!!
