I followed the recipe as written and I like all of the ingredients but this recipe just does not work for me. I'm giving it two stars but I won't make again.
Wow, I am really surprised at all the positive reviews for this recipe. I knew that the recipe would take a long time to prepare, even then, it was still 1 hour 45 minutes of hands on time. As one poster suggested, using a jarred sauce would speed things up, but actually I think most of the flavor was in the sauce. I made the vegetarian version, substituting vegetable broth and eliminating the pancetta, the mushroom layer had no flavor (my husband didn't even realize there were mushrooms in there till I told him), the no-boil noodles don't have the chew of real noodles, and not a whole lot of cheese. I do love kale though, so that part along with the sauce was great. I also made the suggested Fresh Orange Salad to go with, the dressing turned out to be very salty. All in all, the end product wasn't worth the time or the expense of all these ingredients.
This recipe far exceeded my expectations. I made this for my sons birthday party. I needed a veggie lasagna to go with the meat version. Surprise this one came out better than the meat based one. I did make a few changes added a little more pancetta, used kale and mustard greens and added a bit more cheese. My version may not have been quite as healthy but everyone raved about it. This recipe is definitely a keeper
My husband and I really enjoyed this lasagna. My kids did not care for it. I followed the recipe except for replacing the pancetta with prosciutto and the beef stock with vegetable stock. This lasagna took the good portion of an afternoon to prepare. While I really enjoyed the tomato sauce, you could cut down on prep time significantly by using a high quality jarred sauce or by picking some up from your favorite Italian restaurant.
We loved this recipe. It goes in our keepers!
Wow! This recipe seemed a bit too hippie for me, but was looking for something fresh and new. This turned out to be surprisenly awesome! It does take a little more time than usually, but completely worth it.
