I was really disappointed with this recipe. We followed the directions to the letter, but there is clearly not enough pasta and the 2 cans of tomatoes just make this a soupy mess. The picture does NOT represent the final product. I think there is a mistake on the recipe that Hunt's needs to correct.

Quick, easy, and very good. I used ground beef instead of Italian sausage.

I was so optimistic about this recipe: I loved Hunts Skillet Lasagna of the 70's and couldn't wait to try this "copycat" recipe. It was Nothing like it. Nothing. It needs a package of spaghetti mix,as the tanginess of the tomatoes is overpowering. And that ricotta mixture serves no purpose (it isn't remotely like the topping from the 70's). It's a decent lasagna if you "doctor" it up.

This tastes just like the boxed Hunts Skillet Lasagna from forty years ago. I used to make it when I was first married. I have been trying to duplicate it for years. Thanks so much.
