Reviews for No-Noodle Lasagna
"My family loved this recipe. It is fairly quick from start to table (about 45 minutes), and super delicious. Every one in the family declared it's a keeper!"
"This is one of our family's favorites! Highly recommended. It does take the full 20 mn prep time, which is more time than I usually spend, but well worth it. I'll sometimes freeze the leftovers, works well."
