Deliciousness. Wow. I Wanted a recipe that I didn’t have to cook the lasagna noodles first. Then I remembered this recipe. My son and mother raved about it and ate plenty of it. Thank you for a great recipe.

I put this all together in the springform pan and it doesn’t fit into my IP. How long can I cook this in the oven?? Thank you!

hello! I made this lasagna and followed the recipe. But the noodles turned out like uncooked – especially the bottom layer – wet but uncooked. Any ideas what I could do wrong and ways to fix this? I did use oven ready lasagna noodles. Thanks!

Hello
I made this lasagna dish for my family and everybody ready loved it. I was wondering can I make the Lasagna and freeze it. Or do I need to cook it first.

This is a lasagna to die for. My husband says this is the best lasagna he has ever had and went straight to the top of his favourites list. The meat sauce for this recipe l bulk cook using your recipe and then freeze in portions so when we have lasagna l just have to defrost a portion. Really love this website and do a lot of your recipes. Many thanks.

Just like the other reviews I had never used oven ready noodles but this came out delicious! Added ground chicken to the sauce and aged shaved parmesan on top! I made a double batch to freeze for later! Thanks for the recipe! For sure a keeper!

5 star recipe,very good, noodles were cooked perfect, first time using oven ready noodles. Made the meat sauce which was also very good & glad that I have half of it in the freezer for future use. Also put it in the oven for 10 minutes then let it sit for 10 more. Perfect amount for 2, some for the freezer. Thank you!!

Loved this lasagna….literally picture perfect!! I couldn’t believe how quick and easy it was. The only addition I made to this wonderful recipe was to thinly slice a roma tomato and spread the slices over the top before sprinkling it with the Parmesan cheese.
