  • Was very disappointed in this receipt = won't ever make this again. It was edible but way too expensive and time consuming. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone

  • Recipe sounds good but is written in a very unclear way. Does white sauce need to cool before adding ricotta? Coat pasta with sauce after cooking but before layering in pan? Only 2 layers of pasta and ricotta? One pound of mozzaarella on top? You cover with marinara sauce once lasagna has cooked and cooled for 15 minutes? How many servings does this make?

  • The amounts in this recipe look humongous! how many does it serve? Should this be in two 9x13 pans?
