This is one of the best tasting lasagnas I've had in a while and trust me, I love to cook and consider myself a good one. I was a bit skeptical as I read the ingredient list, but I know you have to try different options to find good recipes, so I went ahead and gave it a try. I followed the recipe exactly as is with the exception that I like to season my food, so I added salt and pepper to the meat with a dash of Worcestershire sauce. I added salt to the lasagna water and added a bit of salt to the cheese mix. And no, it was not salty at all, it just helped bring out the flavor. When it was time to eat, I couldn't believe how good it tasted. My husband and kids loved it and I received many praises. Thanks Kraft!
