This recipe was very easy to prepare and was the best tasting Lasagna I have ever made. I used chopped fresh spinach because I had no frozen. I cooked it in the sauce. I followed the recipe besides.

This recipe is very good but I have had to tweak it some. There’s not enough sauce to assemble the way you suggest. 4 layers of sauce,2 layers of ricotta mixture and 4 layers of noodles

Super delicious! I tried this recipe and it turned out really good. My son kept saying it tastes really good which I agree. This is my second time to make lasagna. The first time didn't turned out good. When I saw this recipe it seems simple to make so I tried. I just added more spinach because I love spinach. I used one package frozen spinach and one cup sauteed fresh spinach and followed the instruction. It is really simple to make. I recommend this recipe to everyone. I printed it myself and added it to my recipe collection. I will sure make it again. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

I made mine low calorie by not greasing the pan and draining the fat from the beef before adding the onions.The no cook noodles are thinner but I used regular cooked to save money. I must have not measured right because I needed to add extra sauce to the top. but there was plenty on the bottom before the first layer. I also found it easier to spread the ricotta mixture on the noodles rather than add sauce first. I altered the recipe and in the end it came out great.I covered the dish with foil and the mozarella stuck. Next time I will leave it looser.

Absolutely delicious! I used fresh beet greens instead of spinach and it was the best lasagna I've ever had. It was so easy too. I would recommend this recipe to anyone.

Delicious! I didn't have chopped onions or the dried basil. I used an Italian four cheeses blend in lieu of mozzarella. This is one dish the entire family enjoyed!

Delicious! One of my family's favorite recipes. I usually add fresh sauteed mushrooms & use fresh cooked spinach instead.
