“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.”
I learned to cook when I was growing up on a dairy farm and was a member of 4-H. This is one of my favorite recipes—it makes good use of the abundance of squash we always seem to have in summer and fall. You'll also find it freezes well.—Marilyn Stroud, Larsen, Wisconsin
A definite crowd-pleaser, this classic lasagna is thick, rich and meaty with lots of cheese—just the way I like it. Even though my parents were Hungarian, I have a weakness for savory Italian foods like this.
