"I did not have the tomatoes in the can to add. Instead, I added Italian pepper and seasoning. Just a little basil and garlic pepper and it was yummy!"

"I made this for our Easter dinner and loved it! I did lighten it up a bit, though. I substituted half and half for the heavy cream with no detrimental effects! I also left out the mushrooms (yuck). My grandchildren looked at it with suspicion (lasagna is supposed to be red), but the adults enjoyed it."
