Everyone loves this lasagna. It's often served as a birthday treat for guests. I've lightened it up a lot from the original, but no one can tell the difference! —Heather O'Neill, Troy, Ohio

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

"I tried making it and got my genitalia stuck in a toaster. The instructions were very unclear and I am severely injured while writing this review. Also this was seriously dry, drier than my Saturday nights eating pizza. I thought this would help me get girls, but now i can't even sit comfortably."

"I didn't precook the noodles so I added a cup of water to the sauce. It still could have used a little more sauce. I couldn't find mild Italian turkey sausage so I used hot and it worked great. I left out the fennel. I would actually give the recipe a 4.5 because it is a little costly for meat and all the cheese and it took me about an hour to get it in the oven, but my family of 4 really enjoyed it. It was large enough for two dinners. I'm going to make it again this weekend and freeze it in two batches for weeknight dinners."
