"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!"

"I was amazed at how quick and easy it was to make plus not having to use the oven! My only comment is I will use less sauce so it will be more firm when serving. Definitely will be making this again."

"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!"

"Loved this for a quick and easy weeknight meal. I used a pound of hamburger and French onion soup. This was my first time using no cook noodles and I loved them. Hubby makes traditional lasagna for us and wants to try them next time too."

"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."
