Best Lasagna ever. I’ve been making it for years. Family loves it. Always, send some to our neighbor!

Just like Mom used to make, except the getting burned cooking noodles! You can adjust it all sorts of ways. I use a 10oz box of gluten free oven ready pasta, Barilla or Mueller’s both work fine. Seems to be more broken ones in the Barilla though, from personal experience.

I started making this recipe about 25 years ago when my husband wanted to become a vegetarian by replacing the meat with chopped spinach. I have made this recipe with meat and/or spinach ever since, but we actually prefer the spinach lasagna. Either way, this is a family favorite.

I’m confused about one thing. It says to use a half box of noodles but that would not come close to filling the pan. I’ve been making this recipe for years and just noticed this difference in the recipe. On a side note – my whole family has always loved this recipe, and it is the only one I ever make.

I’ve been using this recipe for almost 40 years now and it has always been my favorite. I use six Italian cheeses in my version and always use Italian sausage. It always turns out perfectly! Thanks Muellers for the best recipe ever!!!

This was the best lasagna I ever made. I substituted ricotta for the cottage cheese. I also added an extra egg, and used shredded parmesean and mozzeralla pearls layered on top of the ricoota/egg mixture instead of stirring the cheese into the ricotta mixture. No more hot, torn, wet, lasagna noodles. Thank you, Mueller’s!

Finally, finally, finally!!! A recipe in my life that gets everything right: the proportions, the ingredients, the cooking time, the arrangement, and the fabulous outcome. I have spent so many hours and dollars on recipes that fail time after time. It leaves you wondering “why can’t I cook?” Then a recipe like this one comes along and makes your day and turns you into a winner at the dinner table. Crown jewel recipe award to Mueller’s pasta.

My mom used it when we were growing up, right off the back of the box. I make my own sauce now which makes this recipe amazing! It’s the only recipe I use. Been using it for over 30 years or so. Thanks Mueller’s!

Great recipe that I’ve been using for years!!!! Everyone always comments on how good it is and wants to know my secret. They are surprised when I tell them it’s the old recipe off the Mueller’s box. I’m making this year for Christmas dinner. If I double the recipe do I need to change the amount of bake time? Or do you suggest making 2 pans rather than one large pan of lasagna?

Do you buy no-boil noodles or the regular lasagna noodles?

Outstanding! I forgot to buy parsley so am using fresh basil instead. .I knew recipe called for something ‘green.’ 🙂
.It’s baking right now, so we’ll see . . . I doubt the basil will hurt the flavor any. Thanks for this great, easy recipe.
A friend makes it with half hot sausage; half ground beef with uncooked noodles. Then she freezes it UNCOOKED for another day.
She sets it out to thaw the day before baking. It’s out-of-this-world delicious. So you CAN prepare it, freeze it, thaw it, and finally bake it weeks later!!

Hi, has anyone ever prepared a lasagna with no boil lasagna noodles and NOT cooked it-but froze it uncooked and then cooked it and it came out good? Please let me know. Thanks, E

I have a question, not a review: can you assemble and freeze this lasagna with the no boil noodles, uncooked? I assembled it and froze to be defrosted and cooked Christmas Eve (11 days from now). Thanks for any responses.

This recipe with a slight change has been a hit for me. I first made it while single, 30 years old and living in an apartment. The family loved it. I just made it again tonight, married, 54 years old and living in a house.. Altogether, I’ve made it about 6 times. I love it.

I love this recipe. So glad I found it on your website. .every time my daughter (in Ga.) Makes it, she calls me from the grocery store..since it’s not on the box anymore. I sent this to maybe she’ll remember she has the recipe. The only thing I do different is add Italian spices (make my own sauce) and pepperoni.

Best recipe and so easy! I am very happy you have this On the Web site I found it on the back of the box the first time and haven’t made it in a long time and it wasn’t the same recipe on the back of the box I just came to your site and I am so happy! Dinner done!

I have used this recipe many times. I do modify mine a tiny bit….I add 8 ounces of both Ricotta and Cottage Cheese instead of what the recipe actually calls for. I like the variety of all the cheeses in this dish. I always use the no boil Lasagna noodles….and no one would ever know that Mueller’s took all the work out of it! This Lasagna is a loved dish by kids and grown ups! This recipe is even easy enough for my sister. She made it one evening for her family for dinner and it was an instant hit!! She is sold on this easy lasagna as much as I am. Thanks Muller’s!

Favorite recipe yet. I typically prepare the night before and cook the next day. Amazing!

So much easier than dealing with boiled lasagna noodles! And it guarantees that the lasagna isn’t too watery. I’m making this for dinner (at family request), and throwing some steamed kale in there just because.

Hi Lorie, This recipe calls for our regular Mueller’s Lasagna, so there are no special varieties necessary. We’re glad you like the recipe!

Do you use special noodles or just layer the regular Mueller’s noodle uncooked? I do like the Mueller’s recipe the best.

Exceptionally good, better than any I’ve ever made. The only thing I did different was to add a 1/2 TBS. of Italian herbs to the pasta sauce.

I’ve been making traditional lasagna every Christmas for about 10 years. This year I decided to try this “no boil pasta” recipe with a little apprehension since I didn’t test make it first. I must say it turned out great, better than any recipe I used where I boiled the pasta! My son said it was the best I’d made also. Note, one thing I did was add a 1/2 TBS. of Italian herbs to the pasta sauce. Thank you Mueller’s!

Yes Lanae, you’re using the meat-sauce mixture as the first layer in your lasagna.

I guess the one cup of meat sauce is after the meat has been browned and the sauce mixed in with it?

Patti – You have a great eye, thank you for catching that. The recipe calls for 6 1/2 cups of sauce, or 52 ounces, so that was a typo in our recipe. We’ll get it fixed right away!

November 14, 2016

Just a question, recipe says 5-1/2 cups (52 oz) of sauce. 5-1/2 cups is 44 oz. Which is correct?

I’ve been making this recipe for years now. Always a hit with family & friends. As noted, let the lasagna sit for 15-20 minutes after removing from the oven. Otherwise it will be too soupy when you cut it. Great & easy recipe!
