Pizza Lasagna

"My husband and I love pizza and lasagna. In this recipe, we have the best of both," notes Vicki Melies of Glenwood, Iowa. "Because we are both watching our weight, I trimmed down the fat so we could still enjoy this favorite dish."

    This is yum! I made it for 2 new moms and what was nice about it was I could substitute out ingredients that they didn't want it, to sort of "personalize" their pizza lasagna! I also liked the fact I didn't have to pre-cook the lasagna noodles. Yea

    Some Web Sites encourage people to write reviews regarding recipes they try - personally, I like both types. It is great to have the specific questions like yours evaluated by your readers (which might not be addressed otherwise), and it is often VERY HELPFUL to read about others' individual experiences regarding preparing the food and, also, varying family responses to the dish. I VOTE FOR BOTH.! Is it possible to get a response from your readers regarding this suggestion?
