Reviews for Company Lasagna
"I have made this recipe twice for company and both times it was a hit. I cooked sweet Italian sausage with one chopped onion, which really made it extra tasty. I also cut up the stewed tomatoes to avoid such big chunks. Definitely a keeper!"
"Pretty basic recipe. I thought 2 tablespoons of oregano seemed like quite a lot and cut it to 1 tablespoon. Oregano was still overwhelming. Next time I will cut it to 1-2 tsp. Maybe my family just aren't oregano lovers, but it would have been inedible with the full 2 tablespoons. I am assuming it is a typo and should be tsp."
"This is almost the exact recipe that I use except instead of cottage cheese I use ricotta and I use crushed tomatoes in place of the stewed ones. Everyone asks me for my recipe and I take it to all covered dish dinners, super bowl parties, etc. Always come home with an empty dish."
"This was easy to make and a very large meal! I am going to be eating it for a few days. Next time I would probably cut the stewed tomatoes into smaller pieces, but that is because my husband isn't a big fan of big pieces of tomato."
