I’ve made this 3 times now - I love this recipe it’s delicious!
As with any recipe one tends to adjust to their own taste. That being said TOH altered my original submission of this recipe! I don't do all those layers and use only 2 layers of noodles (6 total). I continue to adjust my recipe twenty years later! Isn't that what all cooks do as we learn? One thing I will say is you must use fresh ingredients to get the best results - like shred the mozzarella (preshredded cheese contains chemicals that keep the cheese from caking and DOES affect the results). Also, don't use cheap ingredients (garbage in garbage out). If you use pre-processed ingredients don't blame the recipe!! I recently found a true Italian grocery and used their home made goat cheese ricotta and was amazed at the difference that made! In regards to the sauce-I have learned that weather (like humidity) actually makes a difference. I purposely make a thick sauce so the layers "stay in place" as I dislike runny lasagne. Again, personal preference! Thank you all for your comments and enjoy!!!
Would be better without the cotton cheese and the provolone in my opinion. And more spices
Very good recipe but not enough spice. Very bland....too many noodles left over and not enough ricotta sauce to fill last layer.... I don’t make lasagna so I followed the recipe exactly as it said....
Amazing recipe!! My husband’s family loves their Italian food, and I was so nervous to make dinner for them. I found this recipe and have never looked back! The only thing I do different is I have equal parts of ricotta and cottage cheese (about 2 cups each), as we prefer a thicker consistency to really hold it together. Thank you so much!
I've made this lasagna several times, and it is fantastic. This is now my go-to lasagna recipe for special occasions. I've made it for Christmas Eve a few times, and am planning to make it again this year for Christmas Day. I love this recipe.
This is just what lasagna should taste like, rich and delicious and like a warm food hug ! The sauce is incredible, even more so after adding a 1/4 cup of red wine! Added lots more tomato sauce after reading other reviews and it definitely was needed. Worth the effort to put such a tasty dish out for the family :)
This recipe is amazing and worth 5 stars. It is very close to a secret family recipe I have used for more than 50 years. Yes, you can use no boil noodles...if you must, but don’t give this recipe a low rating if you do and find it didn’t quite meet your expectations. Make the recipe using the ingredients as written. You won’t be sorry.
This is the 3rd time I have made this recipe and my family loves and I use the sauce as any marinara sauce I need. A question to the author and readers. I just caught today the recipe calls for 3 8 oz cans of sauce. I had never noticed they were 8 oz cans and have been using the standard 15 1/2 . I could not imagine this with less. Was the 8 oz cans a typo or is that how everyone has been preparing? Regardless of the answer I will stick to the 3 larger cans but I am curious.
