    I like the comment...
    “That's not how you make a lasagna,” Mrs. Cuomo said, gently (but
    firmly).

    It certainly isn't, but when you've five kids, a job, home, husband,
    you need to cut some corners to make something for your family. But
    not this lazyagna.

    What I don't get is that if you're going to use a couple of cans of
    *tomato soup* in lasagna, why not at least buy jars of prepared sauce??

    The Times article explains a lot. If she was raise on Campbell's soup
    based cooking, I can now understand. She started to make a perfectly
    good speghetti sauce, much like mine, then added C's soup. Gack!

    I'm one of those people who was raised on campbells soup cooking. I
    got over it. Don't get me wrong, there are a couple of recipes that
    use condensed soups that I still use because I really like them. I
    don't diss everyone for using a can of soup once in a while. My
    problem with Sandra Lee is that she has taken the all shortucts all
    the time thing way too far. Nothing wrong with a shortcut when
    you are a wife, and a mother and a breadwinner too, but......damn,
    learn how the real thing tastes.

    I'm not sure how much jars of sauce cost, but they're a lot bigger than
    cans of tomato soup too. So it ought to balance out, cost wise. Right?

    Because Campbell's doesn't make a spagetti sauce...and that is the
    brand she is hawking, at the moment. I do hear she has cut ties with
    the company.

    I wish! Mom was and is a *lovely* woman but a cook? She'd need lessons
    from SD.

    Don't get me wrong, she had hot and healthy food on the table in plenty as a
    divorced lady with 3 kids. No complaints other than we prayed for TV
    dinners and school lunches. Other than the cooking area not being her
    skill-set, she was and remains a model of perfect Mom.

    Me too.

    Agreed. Takes time but as I look over her recipes, some really are not that
    bad. They work for a working Mom tryng to do a bit more than TV dinners or
    spagettios. What she does, is upscale that crowd. If it isnt Mario Batale
    (sp?), thats ok.

    I made lasagna last night, using sauce from a jar. The major regional
    supermarkets (Schnucks, Dierbergs and Shop'nSave) here (STL) sell jars of
    pasta sauce from all the most popular, local Italian restaurants and
    regional chains. I bought a 26 ounce jar of one of these pasta sauces for
    $2.99 plus tax; if that is more than two cans of Campbell soup, it can't be
    very much more

    For those who might care, it was spinach and mushroom lasagna. The cheeses
    were ricotta, freshly grated parmesan and mozarella - all from Hautly, a
    regional cheese company headquarted here.

    The whole thang is that you can make yer own tomato sauce MUCH cheaper
    than you using any canned/bottled sauces
    Campell's, etc...

    When I saw the NYT article I thought "Someone is joking"...

    The article said she was a spokesperson for Campbell's at the time. I
    imagine they paid her to create that recipe.

    Maybe they wanted her to use soup, tomato soup in particular.

    I don't care what she used or what they wanted her to use. I was only
    clarifying Mr. Bill's assertion that the company doesn't make a
    spaghetti sauce.

    That sounds good. WAY better that using condensed tomato soup.
