This dish was very tast, however next time I dont think I will use spinach. I will double the meat and the cheese and just use regular already made tomtatoe sauce. It was very tasty, alot of work needed though.

Superb lasagna! I did however use Sausage instead of ground beef, which is just a must I think. Also, the spinach issue; the frozen spinach is too moist even after being squeezed "dry", fresh spinach was much better the second time I made it. It quickly became a favorite in our home. I will probably be making it twice a month, easily! :D

Normally, I love Giada's recipes, but this one is mediocre at best. It was a lot of work for something that is just "okay".

Very tasty dish. I eliminated the spinach cause I don't like spinach and got the noodles that you boil but the dish still came out very tasty and creamy. I also eliminated the parmesan cheese. I don't know what everyone else things but I think that Giada puts way too much salt in her food. I put some salt and pepper to flavor my meat and noodles and that was it. A definite make again dish.

This lasagna seems to be a "mix" of various lasagna recipes.The Italian classic lasagna features both beef and pork meat. Furthermore, I usually avoid using mozzarella or ricotta, or it would "cover" the taste of the meat and the pasta: bechamel is the right ingredient to put between the layers of pasta.

I thought that it was a great recipe! For me the only things that I changed were proportions. Less ricotta, 2X the meat, and liberal amounts of Parmesan. Also, I don't put the butter (just makes things more oily in general. Somebody mentioned that it came out dry for them. Just make sure to boil the pasta enough before using. Bechamel made it smooth and creamy!

I made this lasagna for my family. What a great hit. The spinach was an extra treat (i just used fresh spinach and the sauce was really tasty and not heavy. I will definitely be making this again.

It wasn't as exciting as she makes everything she puts together sound. I used turkey and sweet/hot italian sausage instead for more flavor. Spinach was to stand out for me. It would be better mixed into the ricotta. I love the bechamel in lasagna though!

I followed the recipe exactly and wasn't happy with the results. There is not enough meat and there is way too much bechamel sauce. I also wouldn't cover it for 45 minutes, as I enjoy the dark golden brown that you get without a cover. The 15 minutes of it being uncovered wasn't enough to get it dark golden brown. Given how many great lasagna recipes that are out there, I would never us this recipe again.
