Is Marcella Hazan's green lasagne bolognese worth it?

Marcella's Bolognese is the best. I do double everything, including the bechamel to make one pan of lasagna. Marcella's is a little spare in her amount of sauce. I sometimes use the barilla no cook lasagne sheets and it comes out great. Barilla's lasagne sheets are very thin and taste like home made. A good layer of thin bechemel is important when using the no cook noodles as I think it helps provide the needed moisture. I also sprinkle some parmesan between layers. People are blown away by this recipe. It is not however the ricotta, red sauce lasagna. This is much more delicate and elegant. The Bolognese sauce is wonderful even just on pasta.

Is Marcella Hazan's green lasagne bolognese worth it?

Absolutely worth it even if you take the short cut of using Barilla no bake lasagna noodles, I tried them because an article in -maybe in Saveaur- said they were excellent.
So delicious. i always make extra sauce and freeze it- like money in the bank. I also use a little more bechemel sauce than Marcella.
