Made this today tasty and very filling. Between the whole wheat noodles veggies and sausage the portions are very satisfying. I agree that recipe is short on sauce. After reading the other reviews I added an additional 15 oz can of tomatoes and it was just enough to layer the dish. The recipe as written would have not been enough. Other than that this recipe is very good. Looking forward to taking this to work for lunch this week. Will definitely make again.
Great recipe This lasagna recipe is great! Wondeful flavors and very hearty. I made it with canned mushrooms and chose to stick with the original recipe and make it with sausage. It's a bit time consuming to boil the noodles and assemble but once you take the first bite you will know it was worth it!! Thank you Eating Well! Pros: Wonderful flavor very hearty Cons: Time consuming
For some reason I really didn't have enough sauce - even threw in a can of tomato paste to stretch out the large can of crushed tomatoes. And wound up with far too much ricotta. But overall I would make this again.
I was really surprised with how well this turned out. I made it as stated except I used oven-ready pasta and added 2 cloves of garlic to the meat mixture. I didn't have a problem with the amount of sauce... maybe the other reviewer used the wrong size can of crushed tomatoes or something?Anyway this definitely had a lot of flavor and didn't taste healthy at all!
Started out with this recipe and morphed into something else. I started making the spinach and mushrooms a couple of days before Christmas. When I got to the store to buy lasagna sheets they didn't have them. So I morphed it into a different kind of "lasagna" - layered the spinach/mushroom mixture cheeses and sauce but used eggplant and sauteed tofu slices in place of the pasta sheets. I am still enjoying this vegetarian dish because I made extra and froze them into portions. Pros: Healthy and tasty ingredients. Cons: None.
Healthy version of fairly standard lasagnae I love a good lasagna but they are time-consuming so I want something pretty great when I go to the effort. Even though turned out OK I don't think I would put the time into making it again. There are healthy lasagna recipes I like much more featuring layered vegetables and/or eggplant. I think it might be good for more picky children or people just starting the transition from standard fattening lasagna. But it might not be for you if you consider yourself a healthy recipe connoisseur! Pros: Hearty good flavor much healthier than standard lasagnae Cons: Lasagna takes so much effort to put together
Absolutely great! Have made this several times -loved by everyone -even grandson who 'usually doesn't eat spinach. Substituted 2 T. dried basil for fresh -otherwise followed exactly (unusual for me). Made 24 hrs ahead recently and it still turned out perfect. --- delicious!!
