I found these to be too flavorless, rather bland. I will make them once more, but will definitely use my favorite tomato pasta sauce instead of the tomato/basil one. The cheese mixture needs salt, I'm surprised there was none in the recipe. I may try to boost flavor in the cheese mixture by adding garlic powder.
These were just okay, didn't have a lot of flavor, just needed something more. Probably won't make again.
Just delicious. A fantastic meal and lovely presentation too! Great for family or company.
Do you think it's possible to freeze these?
The filling is creamy and cheesy. Tastes like restaurant quality -- maybe better. I did not have fresh basil but I didn't miss it. Easy to fix and serve. Would make a great meal for family or guests.
Mine turned out really dry. I probably baked too long. I tried it again, but doubled the sauce, put some sauce in the bottom of the dish, a few tbsp sauce on top of the cheese mix on the noodle, and added some Parmesan on that before I rolled them up. Added more Parmesan on top of the sauce, and baked covered for 30 min. More calories, I know, but they turned out better for me. I want to try again with spinach and again with Italian sausage.
My family really enjoyed this recipe. My five year old daughter renamed it Lasagna Yum Yums. I made it as directed but omitted red pepper and used whole wheat lasagna noodles. Could possibly add spinach, mushrooms or some italian sausage as an alternative. Will definitely try this one again!
Oh wow what a great recipe!! This is is so good, I guess it's the fresh Basil that makes the difference, I just happened to have a plant in the yard, I love Sweet Basil. My husband went for seconds and said save that recipe it is a winner, he loved it and he does not care too much for regular Lasagna, but he loved this. I added a little extra Crushed Red Pepper flakes and also used a little Oregano in the mixture and sprinkled a little on top, also used some Mozzarella on the top. Highly recommend this, because it is worth it!!
Delicious! Quick! and the children loved it! My four year had seconds! I added frozen chopped spinach to the cream cheese mixture.
The whole family raved about this lasagna! I had no boil lasagna noodles so I layered like a normal lasagna and cooked by the noodle box directions and it was great.
