"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!"

"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."

"We didn't like it. A few people suggested doubling the cottage cheese mixture (cottage cheese + dip + eggs). I doubled all three and the dish just tasted overwhelmingly like dip. I'd suggest doubling only the cottage cheese if you try the recipe... I also didn't care for the texture of the sausage in the Prego (it was a little gristly)."

"This was the most delicious lasagna I have ever had! I switched it up just a tad...I used mild Italian sausage instead of the beef and Roasted Garlic Spaghetti sauce instead of the Italian sausage and garlic spaghetti sauce. Otherwise everything else was the same and it was just gobbled right up! This will be a recipe that I will make over and over again."
