Reviews for Cordon Bleu Lasagna
"Fit for a king!! I added more noodles ( bigger pan) and another jar of alfredo sauce. Also roasted my own garlic for the sauce. This is incredible!!!"
"I found this recipe in one of my cookbooks and decided to try it. It's really good. The only thing I've changed is the alfredo sauce and that's because I make my own"
"Excellent! Easy and very tasty. Added smoked paprika, Dijon mustard and bacon bits. Going to serve at our ladies' progressive dinner."
"Very taste and unique take on lasagna. The only changes I made were I substituted cottage cheese for the ricotta cheese as we don't like ricotta, and I had no parsley so I used oregano in it's place. The lasagna was very well received by my daughter and daughter in law, and they both requested the recipe."
"I thought this was a really rich dish - but my husband absolutely loved it! Said it was his favorite lasagna recipe. I will definitely make it again. The only thing I added was a little onion and spinach.."
"Worth every calorie! Served it at church to a group of 20 , well received by all. Thanks for the great recipe!"
"I used Lunchmeat sliced chicken in a pinch and it turned out deliciously! I would definitely recommend this recipe!"
"My family- even my picky eater- loves this lasagna. I had some ham in the freezer I needed to use and this was perfect. The only change I will make is to add more ham- more like 3 cups. Otherwise, an awesome recipe."
"It was good! Next time I'll cut the ricotta cheese in half as well as the parm. It was pretty salty and heavy. I like the spinach suggestion, too."
"Guess it boils down to personal taste, but we didn't like this lasagna and were disappointed after reading so many positive reviews. Could be b/c we don't really care for ricotta or swiss, but at least we gave it a try!"
"I had to do dinner one night for both the Masonic Lodge and the Fire Department and was looking for something easy but differant. This lasagna fit the bill on both accounts and was well received all around. Since that evening I have been asked multiple time to share the recipe. This is one I will be keeping and deffinately make again."
"Just made this for my boyfriend and his grandparents. They raved over it! Will definitely be making again :)"
"This was really delicious!! I added fresh chopped spinach into the ricotta cheese mixture. I also used low-fat cheese to reduce calories and I don't think anyone noticed the difference. I am curious to know if anyone has frozen this casserole."
"This dish was absolutely delicious. It is a recipe I will share with all of my friends."
"This lasagna tastes better and better as a leftover; I carried a piece with me for lunch for three days running and by the last day it tasted the best! My coworkers were also mesmerized by the smell of it heating up in the microwave. Would definitely make this again and again and again."
"I just read the adding spinach to every layer, that is a great idea!"
"its a little heavy on the ricotta cheese. My kids were still a little wary of it! My husband loved it!"
"so easy to make a head and freeze and never mind if there is leftovers!! The recipes that always nice to have if your a person on the go."
"I just made this for Easter dinner, and it was FABULOUS! The only thing I changed was to use homemade Alfredo sauce instead of the kind in a jar. It served up beautifully; the layers didn't slide apart like some lasagnas do when they're served from the pan. All 15 of our guests loved it, even the kids! Many came back for seconds, so it was a good thing I made two pans! Just as a suggestion, I served this with Spring Vegetable Bundles, Parmesan Knots, and Almond-Raspberry Tossed salad, all from this site. It's an Easter dinner I'll make again next year!"
"IT WAS REALLY GOOD AND EASY TO MAKE. I HAD A LOT OF LASAGNA NOODLES IN MY PANTRY AND WANTED TO USE THEM IN A DIFFERENT WAY, AND THIS WAS IT! I DID ADD FRESH CHOPPED SPINACH IN EVERY LAYER, NEXT TIME I WILL ADD EVEN MORE! IT COOKED DOWN PERFECT AND DOESN'T CHANGE THE TASTE AND ADDS A NICE COLOR."
"this is my new fav!! the flavors were perfectly genius"
"Came out great. The only thing I would change is less cheese. I will be making this one again."
