In the kitchen, my husband and I like to use classic ingredients in new ways. I came up with this lasagna one day and haven't made another type since. We love it! —Charlotte Gehle, Brownstown, MI

"This was a hit, especially with our daughter who is vegetarian. It isn't as filling as more traditional lasagna, because there aren't as many layers, but everyone loved it!"

"This was very good! It was a nice alternative to meat lasagne. I would say, though, it feeds more like 5-6 adults. The only thing I did differently is I only added about 1 cup ricotta, but that was only personal preference. I replaced it with some more shredded mozzarella. But I do that every time I make a lasagne. Also note they seem to have changed the name of that type of no-cook lasagne. I kept looking for the old "no cook" one, but I realized they now call it 'oven ready'. We all loved it , I will add it to the rotation!"
