"The lasagna was fantastic, but if I have one suggestion use a smaller baking dish so you can get another layer or two on this lasagna"

"Excellent! I was concerned about the amount of garlic but considering it serves 8 not bad. I am extremely sensitive to garlic, too much can make me sick, I could hardly taste the garlic. I added more rosemary, close to 2 tablespoons chopped very fine. I also used soy, vanilla Silk instead of milk because I don't do milk. This will be a favorite on our menus!"

"I followed recipe & both me & my husband agree: WAY too much garlic and weird floury sauce but nice method and we really liked it other than garlic overkill. Squash is delicious in this dish. I will make again as this recipe has potential."

"Very good recipe! Incredibly easy to make - the whole thing took about 10 minutes to assemble after the squash was peeled and sliced. I used jarred alfredo sauce since I already had some on hand, and added a sprinkle of rosemary. Even my hubby, not a big fan of squash, loved it! Will make again."
