Reviews for Johnsonville® Italian Sausage Lasagna
"Everyone really loved the lasagna. I doubled the sauce and eliminated the spinach. This is now my very favorite lasagna recipe and have tried many throughout the years."
"Great recipe! My husband doesn't like spinach, so I used much less then the recommended 2 cups. (I estimate that I used closer to 1/3 or 1/2 cup, and I tricked him into unknowingly eating the spinach by chopping it really fine in the food processor and mixing it into the meat sauce.) I found that I didn't have enough meat sauce to fill the top layer, so the next time I make this dish, I'll skip spreading the sauce beneath the first layer of noodles and, instead, place the noodles directly on the oiled baking dish."
"Recently discovered this recipe which I know will be hit with family. As you can see, already have given *5* star rating!!"
"This was GREAT. I used Gluten free noodles, no one could tell."
"My husband is a "steak & potato" man but he asks me to make this all the time. Fast, easy and will definately make again"
