1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed cream of chicken soup
1 (20 ounce) can
shredded mozzarella cheese
This was the perfect comfort food! I sauteed the sauerkraut with onions and a small amount of caraway seeds. I used penne pasta instead of lasagna noodles. I was surprised that the canned soup taste wasn't so "canned" tasting. I layered in one layer of swiss cheese and one layer of mozzarella. The swiss cheese gave it a nice bite. I also added the dijon mustard to the soup mixture as suggested by another reviewer. I will make this again. It makes a lot, so I'll be eating it for lunch all week! That's not a bad thing, I just hope I don't eat it all by myself.
I'm giving this three stars as the recipe is writen because I found it to be too doughy with the lasagna noodles. The flavor of the recipe is good (if you like sausage and sauerkraut, and I'm a sauerkraut FREAK!) so I'd probably try this again but probably with a different noodle (thin layers of egg noodles? AND more sauerkraut!) or layers of par-boiled thin slices potatoes. And it's really easy to put together if your a sauerkraut FREAK like me who always has sauerkraut in her pantry.
I make a recipe similar to this but use Swiss cheese to go with an almost ruben flavor. My family loves it! We call it ruben lasagna. Drain the kraut well and enjoy! you can use 1/2 lb of sausage and 1 can of soup and make a smaller pan-ful pretty easily. [I usually use lite sausage and soup to cut down on some fat]
I was brought up eating lots of German food and altho it's not my thing, it is my Scottish hubby's love. I started by soaking regular lasagna noodles in a large pan filled with hot water to make them pliable enough to build the dish. I simmered the sauerkraut with onion, a little brown sugar and caraway seeds and boiled the kielbasa to remove some of the salt. Instead of the soups, I chose to make a white sauce which worked out fine. This morning Rachel Ray made a "mile high" lasagna using a loaf pan lined with foil so I followed her lead and did the same thing. Once out of the oven, I let it sit for a good 45 minutes to allow it to set up. It cut beautifully and my hubs thought this was absolutely terrific. Thanks so much Don!
i cannot believe this recipe hasnt received more 5 star reviews!!!!! this lasagna is outstanding. i even made it for a friends wedding. gets devoured every time!!! occasionally i will substitue some of the milk with beer (what goes best with kraut, sausage, and cheese? beer!) and it gives the lasagna an awesome twist! thanks for the recipe :).....i also find it bizarre for people to rate this recipe negatively, claimimg its because they dont like sausage or sauerkraut. those two ingredients are clearly stated in the recipe, so if you dont like them, why would you make this?
I'll be trying this one again. I used Italian sausage instead of kielbasa & I don't think it was the same. Everyone liked it okay, but wasn't wowed by it. With some changes, I think it could be a bit better.
I made two kinds of lasagna for a party and this one was the hands down winner! Unfortunately, there was only one piece leftover. Used no boil noodles and they worked beautifully. Shared the recipe with several of the guests!
Great recipe - recommend you at least try it. Definitely make sure the sauerkraut is well drained.
