“When I make lasagna, I blend an 8-ounce package of softened cream cheese into the ricotta and egg mixture,” writes Donna M. from Newton Falls, Ohio. “Sometimes I also add a little chopped spinach, broccoli or parsley for color.”
My family first tasted this rich, classic lasagna at a friend's home on Christmas Eve. We were so impressed that it became our own holiday tradition as well. I also prepare it other times of the year. It's requested often by my sister's Italian in-laws—I consider that the highest compliment! —Lorri Foockle, Granville, Illinois
Here's a dish that's perfect to share with your sweetie! The heart on top is an easy touch which makes the lasagna extra special. Because you can make it ahead, you won't have to feel rushed when it's time to enjoy your meal.
