I'm a bit confused by all the negative responses to this recipe especially by those who are such experts in Italian cuisine. If you are such experts, why are you using a recipe created by a non-Italian to make your Lasagna? I don't recall Ree every saying she was Italian or that this was an authentic Italian recipe. I'm not Italian, have no desire...

I'm made this recipe this morning, but then microwaved it, yes microwaved it, this evening. The chicken was so tender, the sauce was incredibly sweet and spicy. I used less soy sauce and vinegar, always use less than recipe calls for, and it came out perfect. Served this over pureed parsnips, pears with sour cream and a broccoli salad with red onions...

I purchased long tubular japanese eggplants from my local farm stand and was looking for a recipe when I found this one. I didn't have enough eggplant to fill up all the stuffing, but what I made was delicious. This recipe was very quick and very tasty. Left over stuffing will be used for stuffed mushrooms. I have not made very many of Sandra Lee's...

I made this today and my biggest problem was that there was not enough sauce. I followed the recipe exactly and there was barely enough sauce to cover the chicken. So I made more sauce, doubling the recipe, which at this point...I tripled. Final result was very good even though the chicken did not come out as crispy as I was hoping but it still was...

Delish! I went to my local farm stand yesterday and bought cauliflower because they looked so good. Came home and checked Food Network for recipes.

We also enjoyed this recipe and it was a nice treat. I agree with mismax about all the negative comments about the calories and fat. It's obvious this is not going to be a low cal, low fat meal so why bother commenting on that. If you're concerned about the calories and fat, you shouldn't be looking at this recipe at all. Don't waste reviewers' ti"

Made this last night using a small Meyer lemon and rice instead of linguine. The lemon was small so I could of used 2 of them, otherwise, this recipe come out perfect. My family enjoyed it. The shrimp was so tender and full of flavor. As an intermediate cook, this recipe is a keeper and one I will go to for shrimp scampi. We all loved it."

Delicious!!! I never added flour to my chicken soup and boy does it make a difference. I used chicken stock from the box since I don't have time to make my own and it tastes just as good or even better. And the Worcestershire and Tobasco sauce adds so much flavor. Definitely a keeper recipe. "

By far, the best meatloaf I have made and I've tried them all (bread crumbs, oatmeal, onions, peppers, spices, etc.). I will definitely double up on the sauce the next time since I only had enough to cover the meatloaf as directed in the recipe and keep it in the oven a little longer so the bacon can crisp up a bit more. Very tasty, moist, and so"

I was looking for a simple roasted potato receipe with herbs and found this one on Food Network. The combination of potato, herbs, shallots, and garlic was just what I was looking for.

This was the best apple pie I have made thus far. The apple sauce added richness that has been missing in other pies I have made in the past. I made this for Thanksgiving along with Paula's sweet potato pie. Even though everyone liked the sweet potato pie, the favorite was the apple pie. I served it a la mode and it was a huge hit.

I would not change this recipe at all. It is so rich, creamy and delicious. Definitely a 'go-to' recipe to make for a crowd. Very easy and quick to prepare. But because of it's richness, this is something I would not make very often but when you want something special, this is it! ""
