I was leary about doing this recipe because just reading it, I couldn't see how it could have much flavor. Since reading the posts hear, I realize that I can make my own adjustment, and make it something my family will love.

I love a lot of the tips (like using mushrooms and cutting back on the thyme). I'm gonna make it tomorrow for dinner (and actually looking forward to it).

There are other reviews of this on this board if you're patient enough to look. I wish we had a more structured forum in which to comment on recipes (maybe all recipes from the book listed alphabetically with an option to find them by first letter?). Admittedly, it can be a hassle to look through the boards for reviews, but some of that is lessened by using the search feature.

I have made this recipe for my family with adjustments. I sauteed green pepper, onion, and garlic with the beef to boost the flavor (which is needed) and add vegetables.

This recipe needs different seasoning. I cut back on the thyme and it was still way too much. Next time I will make the lasagna using Italian seasoning, basil, or oregano in place of the thyme.

I've made this one twice now. But, like any recipe (even one from a cookbook) I never make it the same twice ;) I didn't have eggplant on hand, but had mushrooms so I used those instead. I also added spinach to the ricotta mixture out of habit from my traditional lasagna recipe. I have made it with a combination of half a pound of italian ground turkey and some leftover cooked lentils which sounds weird but was really good. It gave some great flavor from the sausage and kept the calorie count and cost lower from the lentils. And, yes, I used straight mozzarella too for the cheese. My family liked it both times, and even my boys asked to take it in their lunches to school the next day. It's easy to throw together for a weeknight dinner. If you don't have time to make a traditional lasagna (a healthier version that is), this is a good option).

This is the one recipe in the cookbook that we didn't 'love'. It was way too bland. We will try it again but add our own choices in spices, etc.

We are making this tomorrow, can't wait.

Last night we tried the Slow Cooker Rosemary Chicken. That was wonderful, everyone loved it!

Hi IAMAGEMLOVER...I recently made this recipe...& tho we all liked it, we also agreed next time I will use Mozzarella cheese in place of the 5 Italian Cheeses it asks for, because no other then personel preference. The noodles were tender & the sauce was ok. It actually came out better then I thought for lasanga in a slow cooker. Hope this is of some help.

My slow cooker doesn't do things like lasagne too well, so if I ws going to try that recipe, I'd do it in the oven.

emoticon Has anyone tried this recipe? I couldn't find a rating for it. I live alone so I am afraid to try something new in case I don't like it. There is no one else to eat it,.

I love SparkPeople
