    This was so easy an delicious. My husband doesn't really care for Italian food but loved this. This is a winner!

    Don't use no boil noodles. Too mushy

    This was an easy and delicious recipe. I was able to prep the night before and assemble in the morning. I added a can of diced tomatoes and 1 can mushrooms. This is a great make ahead for the freezer. I think I would add more seasoning as the spinach taste was strong.

    This was delicious! I worried that the regular lasagna noodles that I used wouldn't cook completely with so small an amount of pasta sauce, but it worked! I'm definitely making this recipe again.

    This is a simple and delicious recipe. I have made it twice now with equal success. This will be a "go to" one for me. The instructions were easy to follow and the ingredients inexpensive and easy to obtain. Except for the ricotta, everything else is a pantry staple. The texture is creamy and with the short crockpot cooking time the noodles were tender and not mushy.

    So so good. Really good. Easy easy and quick to prep, agreed. And yet I feel so accomplished cooking my first lasagna. I thought they were hard :) Noodles: We used regular ol' hard lasagna noodles, too. They worked great. Ricotta: Also, I didn't realize we were almost out of ricotta. So I had to use low-cal cream cheese to substitute for a little more than half of the ricotta. Deeeeelicious. Hubby loved it. We couldn't wait to get into our leftovers the next day!
