I made mine low calorie by not greasing the pan and draining the fat from the beef before adding the onions.The no cook noodles are thinner but I used regular cooked to save money. I must have not measured right because I needed to add extra sauce to the top. but there was plenty on the bottom before the first layer. I also found it easier to spread the ricotta mixture on the noodles rather than add sauce first. I altered the recipe and in the end it came out great.I covered the dish with foil and the mozarella stuck. Next time I will leave it looser.

Absolutely delicious! I used fresh beet greens instead of spinach and it was the best lasagna I've ever had. It was so easy too. I would recommend this recipe to anyone.

Delicious! I didn't have chopped onions or the dried basil. I used an Italian four cheeses blend in lieu of mozzarella. This is one dish the entire family enjoyed!

Delicious! One of my family's favorite recipes. I usually add fresh sauteed mushrooms & use fresh cooked spinach instead.
