MY REVIEW

"I made this for a potluckand most seemed. to enjoy it. I am from-the Buffalo area, so have enjoyed wings for a long time. I liked the spiciness of the dish, but might tone it down a bit by using less hot sauce in the future, depending on who I'm serving it to."

"I made this just like the recipe said, (well, almost, because I forgot to put in the last three lasagna noodles....we put them on top after it baked), and I don't know if it was the brand of wing sauce we used or what, but it was just too salty and tart. I even added a little sugar to combat the tartness, but it didn't seem to help. I couldn't taste the blue cheese, (the cheese came in 5 oz. packages, and I didn't want to spend another $3 for a package I'd only use part of), so there was a little less than called for, but it tasted pretty good anyway. Extremely rich. Don't think I'd make it again."

"Went exactly by recipe, used Frank's hot buffalo wing sauce. It was so, so salty and I usually love salty food! Also very very rich. More like a dip than a main dish. I literally am going to take out the noodles, add some queso or other easy to melt mild cheese and make a dip for game day today."

"My family loves this recipe. It has also became a most requested dish for potluck dinners at work as well. One of the best recipes I have ever tried and it is really pretty easy to make."
