I love hearing how others made my recipes and ways they changed it to use what they have on hand and how they make it to suit their taste. So I thought I would share what others did when they made it.

Loved it!! Super easy to make. Halved the recipe, was just two of us. Used ground beef instead of Italian sausage. Will def make again! - E Schmittler

We didn't have Italian Rolls, so I just bought Italian Loafs, and cut in half. Would be good without the noodles too, I think. Something different! - Jeannie

Made this with added mushrooms, onions and garlic to the sauce, kind of think I could have done with out the lasagna noodles and just made it a bread bowl but still very yummy! - Taylor

Hi Sue! I have not tried freezing them. I'm not sure how the bread would hold up.
