Cheesy Lasagna Recipe

The four different types of cheese make this lasagna a real crowd-pleaser. You can vary the amount of mozzarella, Monterey Jack, provolone and Parmesan to suit your preference. For our family, the more cheese, the better.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 13, 2014 Edited Feb. 15, 2014

"This is the only lasagna recipe I use. I modify it using store bought Marinara sauce instead of the vinegar, brown sugar, water, and paste most times, but I love it every time! I have had a few requests for the recipe. Some people enjoy it when I add extra sauce. We all enjoy the fact that we do not use ricotta cheese, and it is still so great!!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 18, 2012

"I really enjoyed this recipe. I did find that I was needing more sauce, so I added in two additional cans of tomato paste. This turned out perfect. The next time I make this, I will substitute out one of the cheeses for rocotti cheese."

"Next time I'd skip the parmesan because I don't think it added much."

"I made this recipe for my in-laws on Thanksgiving and everyone loved it! It makes a lot, sometimes I make 2 8x8 pans and freeze one for later."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 27, 2009

"Great variation to a typical lasagna. I'm not a huge fan of ricotta cheese, so the four cheeses used here are a great alternative. It also makes a lot, so the recipe could be divided into 2-8x8 pans and one of the pans frozen for later use. My family loved this!"
