This lasagna is a favorite. I use the same ingredients but layer it like traditional lasagna. I have served it to company many times and people always rave and go for seconds. Highly recommend

I used ground turkey and Italian turkey sausage and used no cook lasagna noodles. I also used 2% cheddar cheese and non fat cottage cheese and egg beaters to make the whole thing healther. It turned out very good and everyone liked it.

LOL well now I read the recipe again and saw where I missed the mozzarella the first time around, I don't see why you couldn't use regular cheddar, I may do it that way since I have that on hand too! Sounds yummy and delicious.

I want to try this recipe but think I will just use mozzarella, which I already have on hand.
