My family decided I could cook after I fixed this! I use Italian sausage with a little extra Italian seasoning, garlic and rosemary. I bake it about 40 minutes instead of the recommended 25 because when I tried 25 the center was still cool. You could always check it with a food thermometer before setting out to cool for 15 minutes.
Also, I bake homemade bread with italian seasoning, garlic and rosemary in it.
My kids enjoyed this dish but my husband and I weren't as impressed. The bechamel sauce was great - I plan on incorporating that into our regular lasagna recipe in the future. But the rest reminded us too much of the pre-made lasagna you purchase from the store. I added some cooked ground beef to this (per reviews here) and I'm glad I did, else I'm not sure we'd have liked it at all. For the baking dish size, I couldn't quit fit in 5 layers (I'm chalking that up to the meat.) The dish seemed like it needed a lot more tomato sauce as well in comparison to how much bechamel sauce there was. I also had to cook it for an additional 20 minutes and believe another 10 wouldn't have hurt it.
Quick, easy and flavorful. Loved it.
How easy is this...I started making my Lasagna with Béchamel sauce a while back to cut down on ingredients. You really don't need anything more, it's filling and healthier than some recipes. This is a 2 thumbs up, thank you.
Very easy and very tasty! I did however make a few changes...I opted to use Barilla's marinara sauce that I added a little wine, garlic, and seasonings along with some ground beef, ground sausage, and a 14.5 oz. can of seasoned diced tomatoes. I did two layers as the meat sauce was quite thick. I baked it covered for 25 minutes and uncovered for an additional 25 minutes. Overall, very good with warm garlic bread, a fresh garden salad and a nice glass of wine!
This was very different than any other lasagna I have ever had. I added a little ground turkey to the red sauce to make it a little hardier. I also added a touch of mozzarella to the top so I could get a nice browned cheesy top. I had never worked with the oven ready noodles before and they were a huge time saver and cooked perfectly. I did think the lasagna was a little heavy due to the rich bechamel. I would use the bechamel again, but, with my homeade sauce instead of jarred sauce. I would rate this 3-1/2 stars.
First time making a sauce like this for lasagna. I made a half version in a 9x9 pan. I also added a little shredded mozzarella with each layer. The flavor is good, but I think I still prefer a 'regular' lasagna with ricotta.
I have been making lasagna for many years so I am a bit of a lasagna snob, this was just plain to us, it needed more, sausage, meat not sure - I also miss the ricotta cheese. I did make my lasagna after this using the bechamel here and it was delicious - a great addition so the recipe did some good for us. I wont make it this way again.
