Reviews for Swiss Cheese Lasagna
"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."
"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!"
"I found this recipe to be bland, too salty and not worth the time,effort and money to ever make again. YUK"
"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."
