An old favorite from my mother-in-law's collection, this recipe is now a staple for our family. We like to serve it with garlic bread Caesar salad and coleslaw. -Susan Rourke, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 10, 2014

I enjoy making and baking new and unique lasagna recipes. I love how the three cheeses go together with the meat sauce. I may add a 1/2 pound of Italian sausage to the ground beef next time I make it.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 10, 2013

This recipe required the ingredients that I had in my house. That is the main reason I chose to try it. I took the advice of other reviewers and cut back on the salt. We thought it tasted just fine. I would make it again!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 9, 2010

I found this recipe to be bland, too salty and not worth the time,effort and money to ever make again. YUK

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 13, 2008

The lasagna had a good flavor, but way too salty. I cut the salt down to 1 teaspoon, but felt it could be cut down more.
