Simpler than oven-baked lasagna. Just make sure the no-cook noodles are completely covered by meat mixture and marinara sauce so they cook completely. Definitely needs the mozzarella cheese on top. Some parmesan mixed into the layers would add some different cheese flavor, too.

No, this is not your typical lasagna, but it is very easy to make and a great weekday/game day meal. I followed the recipe exactly and like other readers, I found that this needed to be cooked a little more than the recipe calls for. I broke the noodles into quarters and it look approximately 30 minutes for the noodles to become tender. This will be a keeper.

I followed the recipe exactly. First the top was cold and the noodles were still hard. After cooking it longer, it was way too soupy.

I got exactly what I expected - a simple and delicious skillet meal, perfect for when you're craving a lasagna-like meal but don't have the time (or enough people to feed) to bake a full lasagna and didn't have enough foresight to make a crockpot meal. I left out the meat and used no-bake lasagna noodles and it was fully cooked in the 17 minutes listed in the recipe. I will definitely make again!

Lazy, a crock-pot may help you. No imagination to a low level tasting meal. Take the time out and make it right!

This was a complete waste of time! This was supposed to be quick & easy. Not! Having to layer the ingredients was time consuming. I followed the recipe exactly. The noodles were still not cooked after simmering (agressively) for over 40 minutes. I even decided to take a knife and cut up the lasagna noodles to speed up the cooking after they were still not soft after 30 minutes. Had the lid on it the entire time. After 45 minutes I took out a portion and had bland tasting food with chewy noodles. Tossed the whole thing in the garbage and had my husband order burritos in his way home. So very disappointed

This recipe was easy to prepare and quite tasty. Obviously it can't replace a good baked lasagna but, hey, it works great for a quick weeknight fix.

Tasty!! I used ground turkey. I did simmer for an additional time checking on the noodles to see when they were tender. It is all good :)

This is a great recipe. I did change a couple things. I had regular lasagna noodles, so I boiled them until they were done, and then layered as directed. I also added chopped fresh spinach I had saut?ed until tender. I topped the whole thing with parmesan cheese and put it in the oven for 10 minutes, after cooking it on the stove, so the cheese would be brown. I only use 2 cups of marinara, since the noodles were already cooked. Will make this again.
