Reviews for Sneaky Lasagna
"Yum! And so much speedier than other lasagna recipes I have followed. I used ground chicken (cheaper) & did not chop the vegetables after I microwaved them. It seemed unnecessary.-Theresa"
"Turned out very good - I'm just glad I thought to put a baking sheet under the pan to catch the spill over"
"I made this recipe for my family and we gobbled it up! Leftovers were also excellent. I loved it so much that I made it a few days later for a new mom and my sister made it for friends. Definitely a keeper!"
