Reviews for One Skillet Lasagna
"Like many others, I couldn't find the onion soup, so I took a chance on cream of chicken. The rest of the recipe was made as instructed and it was delicious! Oh, I only used one egg because husband can't stand eggs and I was worried the he'd pick up on it. It was really delicious! And you can play around with the basic recipe and probably not go wrong! Ricotta in place of cottage cheese, maybe? Thanks for the recipe!"
"I made this for my son and my friend Bill, and they both gave it two thumbs up! I did use the whole can of soup because I didn't want to throw one third of it away, so I increased the ground beef to one pound, used a 24 oz. jar of sauce plus part of another one, and used twelve noodles. I thought I had mozzarella cheese but didn't, so rather than run to the store I added four slices of provolone, then a generous layer of the co-Jack cheese - probably about one cup. And I increased the cottage cheese as well, but used just the two eggs. Rather than a skillet I made it all in a Dutch oven......turned out great, and there were generous leftovers to enjoy for another meal! Great recipe!!"
"Loved it. Couldn't find onion soup so I used a can of french onion soup and thicken it up with 1 Tbl of corn starch, heated up. Used Italian sausage and garden tomatoes drained. The sausage added flavor, add a little extra Italian seasoning. Didn't have the right noodles so I cooked regular ones four minutes. Looks like it's bomb proof. Heck yes I'll make it again, as soon as I get the dishes done"
"I am not rating because I have not made this. However, I wanted to ask how strong the onion taste is using the soup? I do not like a lot of onion flavor and have never used this soup in a casserole like this one. Can anyone comment for me? I know I can substitute but I would like to try it as written first. Thanks in advance!"
"A winner in my family! They ask for it at least weekly! Thank you!"
"Yummy! Picky eaters will go for this one! Campbell's makes cream of onion soup. Looking at all of their soups, it can be easy to miss because there are so many....but it's there if you keep looking for it! They're the only one that makes it. I've never seen a "store brand" or any other brand of cream of onion. It has more flavor depth than cream of mushroom, so it's worth the search!"
"This wasn't at all bad for a skillet lasagna, the ease of it pushed it up to 5 stars. I couldn't find cream of onion soup so I used cream of mushroom, which worked perfectly. I did double the extra lean ground beef and amount of garlic also. I only had 23 oz jars of spaghetti sauce so I used one of those and it came out fine. I don't use low fat dairy of any kind so it was all full fat and delicious. I did double the amount of mozzarella and added 1/4 cup of Parmesan. Along with a salad and garlic bread this made enough for the 2 of us for 2 nights and the leftovers tasted even better. The next time I'm going to add a layer of sliced squash or spinach."
"You can find cream of onion soup at Wal mart but you have to really scan the shelves for it. I live in Idaho."
"I wanted Lasgna but didn't want to heat up the oven. I thought this was really good I made it as directed except I used French onion soup I couldn't find cream of onion.I cooked it a little longer about 30 min. I definitely will make again."
"Made this for dinner this evening and my family loved it! More than any other they've had. Next time I'd let it sit a little longer and reduce the liquid to make it a little more solid."
"This recipe has changed my life! It has all of the taste and look of homemade lasagna but done in a fraction of the time. I may never make the hard labor lasagna ever again!"
"This recipe sounded really good but I would need to rework it to reduce the sodium"
"Cream of onion soup can be hard to find. If I can't find it, I use cream of celery and it turns out just as good!"
"This easy to make and my family like it too...definitely a keeper.Had a hard time looking for Cream of Onion but found it also at Wal-Mart (SoCal)."
"sounds easy, but the sodium content is a little high for my taste. Sorry, but that is the doctor in me"
"My family loved this. I didn't have the cream of onion soup but it still turned out wonderful. Used electric skillet to cook. Turned out perfect!!"
"This was really good! I made it without any changes. Not soupy and noodles were done. I worried about that because of a couple of reviews I read. I will make it again for sure!"
"I have a big cast iron skillet and this was a great dish to make in it. The onion soup was a great idea. My whole family loved this and I will make it again."
"I did not think the noodles could possibly be done in 17 minutes. They weren't ! I cooked it for at least 35 minutes before I decided to move to the oven. I make killer lasagna in the oven, this was ok at best. I had hoped for a non-oven version, but this is not it....."
"Been a long time since making this. Definitely **kid friendly**."
"Holy smoke! This has A LOT of sodium in it. Since canned items are high in sodium, I would use fresh tomatoes and herbs. And look for low sodium soup."
"This is by far the best skillet lasagna I have made. I was a little nervous with the cream of onion soup but WOW am I glad I followed the recipe to the letter. Standing ovation Way to GO!!!!"
"I have made it a couple of times. My adult "foodie" daughter loves it - highly recommend."
"This was really good. I was a little leery about the onion soup but believe me, this was good and I will definitely make again!"
"This is really, really good. What bothers me is when someone complains about a recipe when they haven't read it carefully. If kramer2111 had done this, 14 oz jars of sauce would have been used, not 24 oz. No wonder they had 'soup'. Tsk, tsk."
"I followed the instructions exactly, but only used 1 of the 24 oz jars of spaghetti sauce. It was a sloppy mess! I had to serve it in bowls and it didn't resemble the picture at all. I took a lot of teasing about serving lasagna soup. The flavor was OK, but I won't make this again."
"I've made baked lasagna. I've made crockpot lasagna. And, now I can say I've made skillet lasagna. This was very easy and very good. Will definitely make this again. Seemed a little soupy at first but got better as it cooled down more. Good "as is" but next time I might add a little more cottage cheese and mozzarella."
"Sounds good, but in looking for the ingredients I can't find and spaghetti sauce in a 14 ounce container. Could find a 14 ounce container of Pizza sauce. Anybody else have that problem or advice on where they found theirs. Also of course nobody sells a 28 oz. container either, that I found anyway."
"For AnnPatrice - according to the BonAppetit website: A large skillet is 12 to 14 inches in diameter; a medium skillet is about 10 inches and a small skillet is 7 or 8 inches across. Hope this helps!"
"I never made a skilliet lasagna before, nor used the no cook noodles, but this turned out wonderful. My store had no Cream of Onion soup so I used Cream of Mushroom and added some onion powder. Venison was my meat. Sooo good."
"(For AnnPatrice - A skillet is a fry pan so a large skillet is a large fry pan.) This is an excellent recipe. Thanks"
"Excellent recipe. Thanks"
"What is a large skillet? I always wish a size would be given for the cooking utensil."
"Best lasagna I had! I was a little worried at 1st for the cream of onion soup, but it was sooo good and creamy!!!"
"Very good. Family likes it. The second time I made it in a square electric frying pan so I did not have to break the pasta. It also cooked more evenly."
"I used gluten-free spiral pasta and parmesan instead of the Colby-Monterey. Definitely will make again."
"we love this recipe!i make it once if not twice a month"
"My family thought this was great and I just realized I forgot to add the cheese. It was also easy for me to make, perfect for the summer when I won't use my oven. I substituted italian sausage for the ground beef. It was a little watery so I let it cook another 15 min. with the lid off. I will definately make this again."
"I love lasagna, this was simple and good for an easy dinner. I substituted cream of mushroom soup, for the onion because it's what I had on hand. It wasn't soupy, in fact mine burnt a tad. Not enough to ruin it, I just should have kept a better eye on it-my bad. My family, including 2 young children all enjoyed it."
"If this the BEST skillet lasagna the staff ever tasted, the bar is kind of low for this category. It tasted OK, not exceptional. The consistency was soupy and wouldn't cut neatly like the picture."
"Very tasty! My family loved it!"
"Very very good. Even my picky kids liked it and they told me to save the recipe. Only thing i changed was the cottage cheese. We don't like it and i just add provolone cheese in one of the layers. Taste great."
"Excellent weekday version on lasagna. Will do again. Have to plan in advance, though, because I don't keep several of those ingredients on hand. This made enough for 2 meals for our family of 4."
"My husband loves lasagna, so I tried this for a quicker way around making it. We all loved it!! He liked it better than the baked lasagna."
