Review This Recipe
This recipe rocks! My husband said it was one of the best meals I have ever made and I cook alot of meals. This recipe was easy and delicious. I used all freshly grated cheeses which really took it over the top. My local grocery store did not carry this brand of alfredo sauce so I used another brand and also a little bit more sauce than it called for (if you like your stuff saucy) and the lasagna was fantastic! Great way to switch up regular old lasagna!
We love the traditional lasagna - but this may replace it! It is soooo good! And very easy to prepare - I put it together the night before and popped it in the oven the next night and served it w/garlic bread - perfect! This will definitely be made a lot!
I wanted to do something different. I love lasagna. I found this recipe and decided to give it a try. Loved it! I would recommend it to everyone to try.
Outstanding Break from the Norm
Prepared recipe for several fastidious diners and received great praise. This recipe will definitely be added to my personal collection. I would recommend this recipe to anyone who likes spinach.
i love this recipe, it was easy to prepare and really clear to follow.
it was different from the normal lasagnas we have and everyone loved it including me. i recomend this recipe to everyone is great.
This was fantastic and so easy to follow. A very nice change of pace from the traditional red meat and sauce lasagna. Don't know why the other low reviewer had problems with when to add the spinach, the directions are very clear.
Restaurant Style Fancy
This recipe was delicious! I will make it for company because it was impressive. I was a bit apprehensive about making this when I saw a low rating from someone, but decided that I could figure out for myself where the spinach could accent the recipe best (it's great on top of the cheese).
Badly Thought Out Recipe
I made this dish, thankfully, for myself before I served it to company. I was very disappointed: The spinach mentioned in the ingredients is not even mentioned in the actual recipe so I had a bowl full of thawed out spinach to figure out where to add - after the dish was set in the casserole dish. Plus the main ingredients besides the noodles barely filled the dish. I had to make more sausage to fill the void. I DO NOT RECOMMEND this one at all.
This is such a great dish, even for the ones that were already complaining about spinach - they dished seconds! All 7 of us ate leftovers the next day - really good the next day too! I added ground Italian Sausage also. Family pleaser, and feeds alot! Great for freezer meals or a quick no mess cooking.
My friend (who is a rookie in the cooking department) made this for a small dinner party and it was just awesome....and I dont even like sausage! I would have to say that this is the best lasagna I have ever had.
This recipe is a family favorite, even my two year old loves it. I like to use the 'Sensible Alfredo' recipe from this site in it. I also use an Italian blend cheese instead of cheddar cheese. I also put the spinach in the cheese mixture.
This is a very rich and filling meal! I modified it some, using Monterey Jack instead of cheddar, extra parmesan (didn't have romano), canned spinach, no-cook noodles, french fried onions for the bread crumbs and made my own alfredo sauce using a recipe from this site. I also wasn't sure where to put the spinach so I added it to the meat. It was a little salty, so next time I'll use frozen spinach. I also will add mushrooms, onions and artichoke hearts. It's a very adaptable recipe. This is definitely going to be a repeat meal at my house!
State Fair winner
I used this recipe for the Aunt Vi's Oodles of Noodles contest at the Iowa State Fair and won second place out of many entries. It was easy to make and it tasted great. The only problem was that the recipe doesn't tell you what to do with the spinach so I just added it to the cheese mixture and it turned out great.
