Do you prefer to make your own lasagna from scratch or buy it from the store?? I would like to make my own, but find that I don't have the time. I usually just buy it, or make the hamburger helper lasagna.

I make mine from scratch normally but if im really busy and want it quick il use jar sauces rather than make my own, I dont really like the taste of store bought lasagne so prefer to make it myself

I make lasagna at home. Actually, I made it yesterday. The last time I made it was a couple of months ago. The first time I made it, I put bell pepper, carrots and sweet peas. My husband said it is weird but he likes it. I do not buy lasagna at the store, I just do not like the taste. Home-made is great. You can add more flavors to it too.

Very, very rarely I make my own. Usually I buy it frozen. Takes too darn long even that way though!

yeah but its easy to throw it in the oven, and not very many dishes to do afterwards. Thank you for responding.

I prefer to make min. I don't think the store bought tastes good at all. Even though it take a bit of time, it doesn't really take that long if you buy the no need to cook noodles.

As much as I love lasagna I hadly ever serve it for a meal. I have never made it myself. I will buy it from the store maybe once every few years. I keep telling myself that I am going to make it, but I never do.

I have to make my own but not because I want to. The ones in the supermarkets have way too many carbohydrates and sugar. I use Dreamfields Pasta and make my own sauce. Up until I found this pasta I couldn't eat lasagna or any other pasta dish for that matter. Being a diabetic I have had to find a healthier way of cooking and eating. I love to make and eat the veggie lasagna but I sometimes make the meat one too. Have a safe and healthy weekend Kowgirl

I nearly always buy it frozen but I should make my own. I have the time, I'm just lazy, I guess... besides that I'd probably make a lot then eat it all, because I love lasagna!

I love to make my own lasagna. I find the store bought stuff is too boring. I like to add spinach and bacon to mine. I find that since they came out with oven ready noodles it is a lot easier to make.

I've never ever found a store bought lasagne that was nice! They're all either average at best and usually horrible in my experience. The only lasagnes I bother with now are homemade ones. Yum yum yum!

I make my own those that you buy in the store have way to much sauce in them that is all you can taste. I don't like some of the different cheese that they use in the already made ones either I like making it the way that I want it.
