It was delicious! I didn't cook the noodles, but followed the rest of the recipe as it was written. Since my noodles were uncooked, I made sure they were covered with the meat sauce. I baked it for 25 minutes (instead of 20) with the foil. Then I uncovered it and baked it for 15 minutes (instead of covering it and baking for 10). It turned out perfect and not having to cook the noodles beforehand was a time saver! I'll make it again, most definitely!!

This lasagne was very tasty and oh so easy but I am not sure what I did wrong as it was very soupy. It seems like two jars of sauce may be a bit of overkill - next time I may try it with just one jar.

This was good for using a jarred sauce. I gave this tray to my daughter and her family and they really enjoyed it. I pre-boiled my lasagna, added garlic and some Italian seasoning to the ricotta cheese. Delicious!

This was so very good. The balance of ingredients were just perfect for me. The Ricotta gave a nice creamy texture and the Barilla Marinara sauce was not over powering just right, the onion flavor came through nicely was a perfect blend! I did boil the Barilla Lasagne noodles with salt and EVOO for only four minutes this made it easy to handle and had no cracked or broken pieces at all. Love it will definitely be a go to recipe and was easy to prepare!

This was easy and delicious. Makes enough for a large family or to invite guests over. Reheats well. Also, this can be made ahead. I made it the day before, planning to have it for supper and had something come up, so I ended up refrigerating it and making it the next day. You could also freeze it. Just remember to thaw it overnight before cooking. The baking time will need to be increased if you cook it chilled. Will definitely make again!

Happiness is having this for dinner! I really enjoyed this dish and I made it vegetarian by using vegetarian sausage (yes, it does exist).

I prepared the recipe exactly as written-- It was very good and easy to prepare. Perfect for a quick weeknight dinner. Thanks Barilla! #AllstarsBarilla

Used Johnsonville mild Italian sausage, and grated mozzarella cheese, as that is what we have here. This is a very easy recipe, and the results are fabulous!
