    I made this exactly as written, except used small amount of qualIty Italian sausage from a local butcher, along with the ground beef. I did not bake in a skillet, cooked in oven. These are minor changes folks. Oh my gosh, I didn't know lasagna could taste that bad. I even re-read the recipe twice thinking I missed an ingredient. But you'll notice there are no spices, so yea, it was very bland. By the way, I found Cream of Onion online at Target.

    This was VERY good! I could NOT find cream of onion soup in Oregon. It must not be popular here. So.....I improvised and mixed cream of celery soup with dry onion soup mix. I think I could have only used half the pouch of onion soup mix but even using the whole thing it was DELICIOUS! Also, I used hot Italian sausage instead of hamburger because my family likes that better. I sauteed the sausage with 1/2 of a diced yellow onion. Other than that, I followed the recipe as written. Next time I will put a layer of cheese in the middle! I had never used the no cook lasagna noodles before and I was SKEPTICAL! But it turned out great. It probably cooked for about 30 minutes to get them soft. This one is a KEEPER! YUM!

    The flavor of this lasagna is phenomenal! My husband and I both loved it. Only giving it four stars because I had trouble getting the noodles to cook all the way through.

    This recipe had me craving leftovers! I had to tweak the recipe because I didn't have soup but I did have dried onion soup mix. I had a 900g pack of meat so I cooked it all and added the cans of tomatoes and spagetti sauce. In Canada our cans/bottles are larger, so I basically made spagetti sauce for another day. I followed the rest of the directions on how to assemble except I went one layer extra. I adjusted the amount of Cottage cheese mixture to accommodate the extra layer. I used gluten free noodles and I gotta say!!!!... this recipe will be used A LOT!!!! Thanks so much!!

    This was really good! I used cream of mushroom soup instead of cream of onion and since I increased the ground beef, I used the whole can of soup. I substituted ricotta for the cottage cheese and used regular lasagna noodles, which I cooked al dente. Easy one pan cleanup! Will definitely make again!

    We LOVED this dish! The cream of onion really makes this dish. I used ricotta instead of cottage cheese but kept everything else the same. I also used my Dutch oven, pasta was cooked as directed and perfectly done. I will be making this time and time again!

    No way no cook lasagna noodles were done in 20 minutes. Cooked 25 minutes and they are still cooking.
