I thought that adding the water to the sauce made the finished lasagna a bit runny. But then the recipe did not say exactly how much water to add. Of course, after going through the recipe, I know how much water to add now, but the recipe should have specified that information from the beginning. Otherwise, the lasagna is delicious, and my family loved it. One of my relatives who is a cook/chef with a culinary degree thought it was really good, which I'd say is a good thing. He went back for more.
