"Yummy recipe but I still prefer the other very veggie lasagna recipe from Taste of Home just because it has a lot of vegetables. If you are a picky eater and do not like one vegetable over the other then this is the one for you."

"We really enjoyed this recipe, despite the lack of meat, (and I heard about it.) We used whole wheat noodles, a little less broccoli and spinach, and no summer squash (not in season out here.) It came out great!"

"I'm no rocket scientist....but to address your inane comment...there is NO picture to correspond this recipe with in the first place. Sheesh... I guess even a recipe site can attract the dimwits...surprising they can even utilize a computer"
