When I make this tasty chicken lasagna at home, I use a whole bottle of Buffalo wing sauce because my family likes it nice and spicy. Increase the pasta sauce and use less wing sauce if you prefer. —Heidi Pepin, Sykesville, Maryland

"I cut this recipe in half and put it in my 3 quart slow cooker and I think it worked out well! I used a tomato basil pasta sauce and Sweet Baby Ray's buffalo wing sauce. It was pretty spicy! I didn't use the full amount of ground chicken because it was a leftover from another dish. I also didn't have the full amount of ricotta (oversight by me). I wish I had had all the ricotta and I might have even added a bit more in to quell the heat. I used the feta instead of bleu cheese (my husband isn't a fan). The red pepper gives this a great little crunch, just an extra texture, which was really nice. Because my slow cooker runs hot, the meal was done in about 2 hours. Very yummy, and I ate my entire bowl, despite hating spicy food. I did add a bit more mozzarella on top to help with the heat in mine ;) I'd make this again."

"This went over well at my house. I did make some modifications. I used cut up boneless chicken breast and made my own buffalo sauce (doubled the amount called for) It was very rich and delicious. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Heidi."

"I made with roast chicken not ground, used 3/4 cup hot sauce and 3 1/4 cup tomato sauce. Didn't cook noodles. Very good."

"I made this and my family loved it. I added extra of both sauces to make sure it didn't end up on the dry side. My family likes lasagna extra saucy though :)"
