Reviews for Beef 'n' Sausage Lasagna
"I made this for my family. They all loved it even my 4 year old who is hard to please."
"I used ground turkey and Italian turkey sausage and used no cook lasagna noodles. I also used 2% cheddar cheese and non fat cottage cheese and egg beaters to make the whole thing healther. It turned out very good and everyone liked it."
"LOL well now I read the recipe again and saw where I missed the mozzarella the first time around, I don't see why you couldn't use regular cheddar, I may do it that way since I have that on hand too! Sounds yummy and delicious."
"I want to try this recipe but think I will just use mozzarella, which I already have on hand."
"That white cheddar is pretty expensive,can I substitute med. cheddar?Trudy"
