"I really liked the ease and speed of this recipe. It was not as good as traditional baked lasagna, but for a fraction of the time it was well worth it. I cooked mine in an electric skillet, which fit the noodles better. It did burn a little on the bottom, but I did not have the "soupy problem" like another reviewer. I cooked mine for about 25 minutes on 300 degrees. It's hard to judge what temps high, med , low and simmer are when using the electric skillet. Any advice?"

"I have made this recipe over and over again and my family all LOVE it!!! We did not have a problem with it being soupy at all, it cooked perfectly as directed. Instead of baking sauce, I use regular jarred/canned spaghetti sauce and it cooks the same. I have added canned mushrooms and have made with turkey before, and it always turns out fantastic!"

"This recipe should be renamed to Lasagna Soup. After 20 minutes the no-cook noodles were still very undercooked. I continued to simmer for another 8 minutes until they were al dente enough for us to eat and when I tried to portion it out, everything ran together. I added no extra liquids and used the recommended container of sauce on the recipe. It tasted okay, but as my son put it, it looked like vomit on a plate."

"I had to post a comment as soon as I got in to work this morning to let everyone know how SIMPLE and AMAZING this turned out! I am someone who counts every calorie so, after some minor adjustments, this was a wonderful almost fat free lasagna! Substituted "baking sauce" for Hunts No Sugar Added Tomato Sauce, used Crystal Farms Fat Free Ricotta Cheese, Egg Beaters, omitted the meat altogether, used reduced fat mozzarella, and added some fresh chopped basil, 1/2 of a chopped onion, and 1 chopped green pepper to the ricotta and egg mixture - it was absolutely amazing! No one would have ever guessed how healthy it turned out to be! Thank you for sharing a great and quick lasagna recipe!"

"Re: ITALIAN "BAKING" SAUCE you mean any prepared Italian sytle pasta sauce? I'm not familiar with "baking" sauce."
