I agree with a previous reviewer that this is a great base recipe. I added quite a bit...a can of mushrooms, oregano, salt, pepper, garlic powder. I wanted more of a lasagne casserole instead of a more traditional lasagne, so once it was done cooking I just stirred everything up (I broke the lasagne into bite sized pieces when I was layering). The only thing I found when doing it this way was that I needed more noodles. It really is a great recipe to build on. I will definitely be making this one again.
During the skillet-cooking step I added some diced garlic, shredded zucchini and carrots, and sliced mushrooms, and I used a slightly larger jar of pasta sauce than was called for (and a little less water, to balance the liquids). The end product was very tasty but there was one big disappointment: the noodles in the middle were so overcooked/oversoaked they were soggy. I'm not sure if this is something that can be corrected by using less water, for example, or substituting whole-wheat noodles (which perhaps don't get quite as soft as white noodles), but I may experiment with that because if the noodles hadn't been soggy, it would have been the perfect lasagna.
