    So delicious, creamy and easy! I couldn't find the exact sauces in the recipe but I got as close as I could. This is not dry like other recipes I've made. And with French Onion Dip you know it's going to taste good!

    I've been looking for a quick and easy lasagna recipe and this is it! I did increase the cheese mixture in order to use up the entire cheese cartons (I used 16oz cottage cheese, 15 oz ricotta cheese, and 12 oz onion dip, 2 eggs). I could only find parmesan spaghetti sauce, so I added chopped garlic in with the browning meat. Thanks for the recipe!

    This is a great dish! As other reviewers suggested, I double the cheese mixture (I also use ricotta instead of cottage cheese, just my preference.) I also use italian sausage instead of ground beef. Turns out perfect every time!

    This is a good recipe for when you have a lasagne craving but not much time. The dip gives it a tanginess that we liked very much.

    We didn't like it. A few people suggested doubling the cottage cheese mixture (cottage cheese + dip + eggs). I doubled all three and the dish just tasted overwhelmingly like dip. I'd suggest doubling only the cottage cheese if you try the recipe... I also didn't care for the texture of the sausage in the Prego (it was a little gristly).
