A good recipe. I really enjoyed the fresh mozzarella. After reading the reviews, I decided to tweak this recipe. I added 1/2 lb. ground beef seasoned with 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, 1/2 tsp. onion powder, and extra sauce. If you like more sauce, buy two jars of the sauce.
Taking note of other reviews I made a few changes. For just myself and my husband I made 1/2 the recipe but used a full jar of Barilla's mushroom sauce with an added 1/2 lb. cooked ground beef. I'm glad I used the full jar for 1/2 recipe, otherwise I would have run short, which I was close to as it was. I chose the mushroom sauce since my DH likes mushrooms in his sauce (and I rarely add them to my homemade sauce) combined with other reviews stating the meat sauce was lacking in meat. I also used fresh spinach since I always have that on hand. Followed the rest of the recipe as stated and baked in a 11x7 pan. While I enjoy Barilla's pasta there was something about this recipe that neither my DH nor I cared for. I found the sauce a little sweet for my liking and the ricotta I chose wasn't smooth/creamy (could only find a store brand). Unfortunately, after our first helpings, the remaining lasagna got tossed, which is highly unusual in our house. I'll stick with my homemade sauce but will always rely on Barilla's lasagna noodles. They're always a winner.
Good recipe, though I like a little less pasta in the porportions. I actually used only half a box, and needed to open a second jar of sauce. this sauce is a bit sweet for me, but DH and DGD chowed down, having 2 or 3 servings! Loved this sneaky way to get a bit of spinach into DGD, lol! If you are hankering for some lasagna, but don't want to go through all the steps of a homemade sauce, the Barilla sauce is a nice one to keep in the pantry. It's also kind of a sneaky way to have the flavor of meat without much meat in it, if you have health concerns. I did use fresh mozzarella and fresh ricotta, and they lift the dish quite a bit.
Good but I think I would like it better with fresh spinach and we added meat to make it a main dish for my family of meateaters. I will make again for sure
I used a jar and a half of sauce. Added 3/4 lb. Italian sausage to the Barilla meat sauce because other reviewers suggested adding more meat to the recipe. This is a wonderful lasagna recipe that I would highly suggest you to try. Wonderful balance of flavors and textures.
This was really good but next time I do think I will use fresh spinach, and a couple of real thin mozzarella slices to one of the other layers as well. Yep we like things cheesy around here.
I really enjoyed this but I had to make a few additions as my husband doesn't like jarred sauces. I added some garlic, red pepper flakes and some Italian sausage. We really enjoyed this and using a jarred sauce sure made it easier. Very good.
I loved this but used an extra jar of sauce & added cooked bulk Italian sausage. This will be a regular for me.
