Six-Cheese Lasagna

No one will ever guess how easy this hearty lasagna is to make. No-boil noodles and prepared spaghetti sauce save time and also, extra pots and pans. If your family is like mine, they'll love this! —Jodi Anderson, Vassar, Kansas

    OMG, this is the best I ever had. Omitted the sausage and went with 2lbs. ground beef. I also love asiago and used 1/2 cup of it.

    SOOOO good, my family just loved it. Will definitely be making this again. I did use 2% cottage cheese and part-skim ricotta.

    I have made this recipe many times - most recently for a group of 25 high school soccer players. There was not one bite left! It is absolutely the best lasagne ever! I would put it up against any lasagne served in any Italian restaurant.

    This was really good. Very simple and my whole family liked it, even those who are especially hard to please. A keeper!

    Tasted great but needs more sauce. I will use a jar and a half or possibly two jars next time.
