Greek Lasagna Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 4)
Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2003
I followed the suggestions of other reviews and halved the amount of pasta, doubled the feta cheese, and cooked it in layers. Thank you, everyone! It turned out great. I used flavored feta cheese and added spices typical of other Greek recipes I have (since I couldn't find a Greek spice at the store), and it was very flavorful. I layered it pasta first, then the feta cheese, then beef, tomatoes, and finally Parmesan. I added a clove of garlic to the beef and onion during cooking. This is also where I added 2 t. chili powder, 2 t. ground cumin, and 1/4 t. ground red pepper along with the 2 t. cinnamon. I drained the tomatoes of their juice and added 3 T. of lime juice to them. My whole family loved it, and I will most definitely make it again...soon.

The recipe sounds tasty , no doubt, however, I think it was a bit on the bland side. When I made it it was very dry and I had to add an additional batch of the cream sauce. Perhaps actually layering, as with traditional lasagne, would be better as it would keep the cheeses from melting and "disappearing" with the rest of the ingredients....I don't know, I just think that all of the flavors were overpowered by the pasta...I may try again but add some diced red and green peppers as well and then try the traditional layering rather than casserole method.

This recipe was pretty tasty but I omitted about one fourth of the elbow macaroni after it was cooked because it seemed like it was to much in proportion to the meat mixture.

It needed more feta cheese. Other than that it is delicious!

I had to cut the onion and sub tomato sauce for chopped tomatoes (picky kids), but each one ate two big bowls of this great dish!--and they hate everything. I also added Greek seasoning while cooking the beef (available in spices--usually near cajun seasoning). I didn't tell them it was lasagne, because then they would look for layers, but just called it Greek Hamburger Helper, since they love HH. I would make this again.

Bland and unispiring - not worth the minimal effort.
