Creamy Beef Lasagna

The creamy Stroganoff-like filling in this distinctive lasagna makes it a stick-to-your-ribs entree. My family loves the delicious taste, and I appreciate that it's inexpensive to fix. -Jane Frawley, Charles Town, West Virginia

    This is really good, I've made it many times. It's nice to make when I want lasagna but don't have ricotta or mozzarella cheese. Not sure about the "nastiest thing I ever put in my mouth" comment, to each their own I guess.

    I have made this recipe many many times and its one of our favorite lasagnas! I love using it because it is so easy to throw together and the cream cheese instead of ricotta is a nice twist and make it sooo creamy! I do at times add extra seasonings to the meat mixture and cheese mixture. I normally half the recipe for just the two of us. When I make the full recipe I add only 1 lb of meat, its plenty. I also like my lasagnas very saucy, so I add in a can of diced tomatoes with the tomato sauce. This is so easy to cut calories by using ground turkey, reduced fat cream cheese, fat free sour cream and skim milk, and it still tastes like the full fat version! Excellent recipe!

    I increased the hamberger meat to 3lbs, but still fell short while layering. There just wasn't enough to spread around. I also increased the cream cheese to 3 (8 oz) pkg's, but didn't increase the sour cream or milk. Our servings were totally unappealing, as it looked like a bowl of mush.

    Soooooo good. I didn't change anything except I laid the lasagna noodles the right away-3 to a layer so I used 9. I think we would feel like it is too much pasta using 18. Will make again, I can't get enough of this!
