Reviews for Spinach Alfredo Lasagna
"Like the other reviews, my family loves this recipe (I've been making it for years). I've prepared this recipe as is and like it, but by switching it up with a bag of fresh spinach and a grated carrot in lieu of the frozen spinach really makes this a stand out lasagna. Once the sausage is browned, I lay the grated carrot and spinach on top of the sausage, cover with a lid and let it wilt for about 5-10 minutes. I then add the S&P and alfredo sauce, and mix. This is one of those recipes that is wonderful right from the oven, but is even better the next day as leftovers. I always get a recipe request when I take this dish to a family or church event. A great way to get spinach and carrots in your "non-veg" eaters too."
"My family loved this recipe. I did change it slightly though; I used 1-1/2 lb. sweet Italian sausage, 2 packages of drained spinach and 2 jars of Prego Alfredo sauce. I had some roasted tomatoes that I'd made and added some of those to the meat mixture. This wasn't that difficult to put together and it would also work well as a half recipe for smaller groups. My husband raved about this recipe and told me not to lose it! Definitely will make it again."
"This tastes just fine. BUT considering the prep I would stick with my traditional lasagna for all the work that went into it. I think it had a flavor more like a quick fix dinner."
"This is one of my favorite lasagnas to make! It is FABULOUS! I use hot sausage and Classico Alfredo sauce ... soooooooo yummmy!!!!! This is comfort food at its best!"
"I made this for my picky family. I used spicey sausage. I made half with the alfredo sauce/spinach and half sausage/marinara sauce. It was delicious and having two choices in one dish was great for picky eaters!"
"SO yummy! I try to reduce fat with low-fat ingredients when possible (turkey sausage, low-fat cheese, etc.)."
"Deliciously cheesy, rich, and hearty. This was a favorite by all who tried it. I will definitely make it again, although I'll make it in two 8x8 dishes since there are only two of us and this make enough to feed an army."
"not sure my family thot it better than my regular beef lasagna, but i loved it !"
"So delicious, my family loves it."
"My favorite lasagna recipe - I have been making this for years. It freezes great so make two smaller pans and freeze one for later. I make mine with turkey sausage (to keep the calories down) and cottage cheese (because I don't like ricotta). Seriously you will love this!"
"I have made this lasagna many times & my family loves it every time!"
"I have"nt actually tried this recipe butit sounds wonderful making it tomorrow but instead of sausage I am using ground turkey"
"I added another jar of sauce on top before I baked it. It just seemed like it needed more liquid. Everyone loved it.. rave reviews on the taste!"
"I've made this many times- an absolute family favorite. I add more spinach as we all like it. Definitely a 5 star recipe in our book! One daughter likes it better than traditional lasgna."
"I used chicken instead of sausage, but followed the rest of the recipe and it turned out really good. Nice change from the red sauce lasagna."
"I have made this lasagna for many years and everyone always loves it! It's a great change from a typical tomato-based lasagna."
