Meh, I was kind of unimpressed. This meal takes a very long time to cook even though it's very basic. It didn't taste superb -- the cheese mixture masked all of the other ingredients. I'd recommend adding some seasonings.
For how bland it tasted and how basic the cooking process is, you would think a 50 min prep time would taste amazing. Stick to regular lasagna.

I tried this last night and it was yummy! I even served it to company, pretty brave move not knowing how this would turn out, but would definately do it again. I used turkey instead of beef and I added some mushrooms to the cottage cheese mixture. Served with some fresh french bread, and salad couldn't have asked for a better quick easy meal that didn't heat up my kitchen.

This was very easy to make and quick enough to get on the table at a reasonable hour on a work night. It was a hit with the whole family, even my very picky 3 year old. I forgot to add the shredded cheese and we didn't even miss it. It definitely makes 6 servings. I took leftovers in my lunch and it was still delicious re-heated. I will be putting this in my file for sure!

I made this 2 weeks ago and my husband is still raving about it. The cheese mixture is so creamy and full of flavor. It is better than any layered lasagna that I have ever made...not as pretty, but definitly tastier!

The store didn't have mini lasagna so I used rotini pasta. The cheese mixture really added something different. Was pretty good and will make again.

Tried this last night and was very disappointed. It was easy to make and looked good, but the cream cheese mixture was overpowering and not at all tasty. There was also way too much of it. I would recommend trying a more traditional ricotta cheese-based filling, or omit that layer altogether and just sprinkle generously with the "Italian cheese blend."

substitute the beef with ground turkey instead for a little twist on this family favorite. It cuts the fat drastically yet no one knows the difference.
