"I was in the mood for lasagna but didn't have the noodles on hand so I followed this recipe using macaroni (the kids enjoy that more anyway!), and some ground beef I had already fried up in the fridge. I made it as a large casserole so it could feed the whole family (doubled the recipe). Served with garlic toast. Delicious!"

"I've made this recipe for my family since it was first published in TOH. So much easier than going to all the work of making traditional lasagna & nearly as tasty. I have to quadruple the recipe to feed everyone. I use 16 oz. of shredded mozzarella because we like the extra cheese. Otherwise, I follow the recipe exactly. Very good & quick!"

"Actually, I'd prepared this recipe back when it was featured in Taste of Home!

I used 1-1/2 cup spaghetti sauce and layered the noodles, sauce and cheeses as one would for regular lasagna. I used one small casserole and I'd baked the casserole for 45 minutes at 375o F. I'd found this to be a very tasty dish to prepare! Thank you, Carol Mead, for this recipe! It is a keeper and it does take much less time than preparing a regular lasagna! DELowenstein"

"This really was VERY easy. Plus with the extra sauce, cheeses, and could easily make 2 more after the inital 2. I would suggest maybe adding 1/4-1/2 cup of extra sauce just cuz it seemed a bit dry. Easy peesy, lemon squeezy (as the kids say) meal for a weeknight."

"I made this last night but added 3/4 lb. crumbled italian sausage. It was a bit too salty for my taste but had a real good flavor. My 4-yr-old LOVED it and wants it again tonight. I put it in 4 individual ramekins."
