View Full Version : 44 views and no opinions

I posted a question and much to my surprise it had 44 views but not one opinion what no one here eats lasagna??
12-06-2004, 01:49 PM
well, you had asked for comparisons between all the normal CL lasagnas. so maybe the 44 people who read the thread hadn't ever tried those CL recipes. or perhaps they had and were too busy to post now but were planning to post a reply later...
could be many explanations.
I haven't tried any of the "normal" CL recipes, myself, so that is why I didn't reply.

Unfortunately, I haven't tried any of CL's "normal" lasagna recipes either, or I would have responded to your thread.
And no, I hardly ever eat lasagna.

I didn't view the first thread, but for what it's worth I don't eat lasagne very often, I make it even less and I've never made a CL version :)

I just use the recipe on the back of the box. Not very exciting, really. I usually modify it by using some turkey italian sausage, extra garlic, extra Italian spices etc. -- but nothing too terribly interesting.

sorry you got neglected but that's how it goes sometimes, may as well get used to it or learn to be more patient. it was a busy time of day when you posted. i didn't reply because i don't have a lasagna recipe, i try a new one every winter the one time i make it.

I like the "hearty lasagna" recipe in Cooking light complete.
12-06-2004, 02:28 PM
I looked at the original thread but it seemed to me you wanted an opinion of which of the CL lasagne recipes was favored, and I've never made any of them. When I make lasagne I just wing it, but what I make is similar to what you'd find on a box of lasagne noodles. I use ground beef only, no sausage, good-quality bottled marinara if I'm in a hurry (with added basil), cottage cheese or ricotta cheese depending on my mood and availability.

Count me in as never-made-any-CL-lasagna recipes, and like Claire797, when I do, it's a supercharged version of the back-of-the-box recipe. Sorry!

Lack of typed out responses is no indication of lack of interest. A thread I started last night with a recipe review (sugar cookies) has had 64 views, but no responses. I'm thinking that people are too busy baking sugar cookies to have time to type, lol.
I didn't have any meaningful input for your original question, and don't have any now.
You were looking for opinions on the 'normal' CL lasagnas, right? You might have gotten more responses if you'd posted the recipes that intrigue you, asking for opinions about specific ones. At the very least, it would have given people a clearer idea what you meant by 'normal.'
I don't see the point in endlessly typing "I don't have any useful information or opinions, but hiya just the same" for every single thread. This board moves much too fast for that, so I tend to stick to either saying something like "I have opinions on this and here they are ... " or "I don't have a clue, but what an interesting questions, will be waiting to see what response you get ... "
One problem I've noticed is that people (in general) tend to head their threads with statements that don't reveal much about the content of the thread, so in order to find out, you have to click on the thread. Lots of views, no response in that case, only means that people had to click to see what was in the thread.
I also wonder why you were so impatient for feedback? You posted the original question first thing this morning, and started this thread in the middle of the afternoon. Kind of impatient of you, IMO. At the very least, you could have bumped up the original thread, hoping for more feedback, instead of starting this separate thread.
If I'm in that big of a hurry, I tend to try searching the BB first, to see what treasure I can find in older threads. Why not give it a try?

I hardly ever make lasagna--so I likely skipped in the thread. You'll learn a lot here--but get what you get in responses. That's just the nature of any board. Relax and enjoy. :)

Same thing as other posters....I actually saw the title, but did not look at the thread because I too am a "winger" :D so I did not have a recipe handy. Also, being just DH and I, I rarely make lasagne (much to DH's dismay).
Do like I do and put in a shameless bump to get your post near the top again....this board moves pretty fast sometimes.
12-06-2004, 05:57 PM
the only lasagne i make any more (don't really know why)is the fake it don'tmake it from realsimple and i don't consider that normal....
12-06-2004, 06:02 PM
I missed your thread.....
I've made the Hearty Lasagna in CL Complete and the Eggplant Parmesan Lasagna from the Recipe finder. Both are excellent!!
12-06-2004, 06:07 PM
Thanks so much to all of you for your positive input. Going with the hearty lasagna for sure.

Sorry to be so dense, but how do you find out how many views a post has had? Judy K.:confused:
12-06-2004, 10:10 PM
When you're looking at the Great Food board (or Other Stuff or Healthy Living), and you see the list of thread titles, there are columns to the right of the thread title with numbers - one column shows the number of replies and the other shows the number of times the thread has been viewed.
12-07-2004, 07:08 AM
It's just that easy, isn't it? Read the titles at the top of the columns.:o Thanks.

I make Hearty Lasagna on a regular basis. It's very popular with my family. You can add more veggies if you like.
12-07-2004, 09:05 AM
Mine is basically a twist on the back of the box recipe. I wing it!
12-07-2004, 09:32 AM
Wow - 773 views!!! :D
12-07-2004, 12:23 PM
I have made the Hearty Lasagna multiple times. I probably usually add more cheese than called for... I don't have the book in front of me so I'm not sure about the title but my husband also really likes the chicken and spinach lasagna with white sauce.

Yes, but I'm 888 with no opinion. :p

I have made Paula Deen's lasagna and my DH really liked it.I have also have done a sausage one, turkey one, Pizza one, chicken one, Mexican one. The best tip I have read in Cuisine was to use Alouette or a similar cheese spread instead of Ricotta/ cottage cheese. Haven't done it yet, but it does sound good.
