Reviews for Creamy Onion Lasagna
"What an awesome recipe and a nice twist to regular lasagna! I have never had lasagna this creamy!"
"I've been looking for a quick and easy lasagna recipe and this is it! I did increase the cheese mixture in order to use up the entire cheese cartons (I used 16oz cottage cheese, 15 oz ricotta cheese, and 12 oz onion dip, 2 eggs). I could only find parmesan spaghetti sauce, so I added chopped garlic in with the browning meat. Thanks for the recipe!"
"My daughter made this dish for our family and it has become our favorite lasagne receipe."
"This is a great dish! As other reviewers suggested, I double the cheese mixture (I also use ricotta instead of cottage cheese, just my preference.) I also use italian sausage instead of ground beef. Turns out perfect every time!"
"This is a good recipe for when you have a lasagne craving but not much time. The dip gives it a tanginess that we liked very much."
