"I make this often with a slight variation. I add a container of cottage cheese and browned ground beef and one egg to the spinach. Makes a delicious center layer. Huge hit with the family. And i do not preheat the sauce."

"It's a great way to serve a meatless entree to my family who base every meal on meat.

Lots of ways to dress it up or make just as the recipe states. Very good, quick, easy. I prepared a big pan to take to a potluck dinner and nothing was left behind. That speaks for itself!"

"I was pleasantly surprised with this dish! I had a package of ravioli in my fridge that was a freebie from my local supermarket. I made my own tomato sauce because I have so many canned tomatoes from the summer, but otherwise made the recipe exactly as directed. Delicious! The ravioli soaked up the tomato sauce and the spinach really complimented everything. I'm going to try using ricotta between the layers next time I make this."

"I don't like to feed my family pre-prepared, processed food (ravioli) but I have to say this is a great recipe for a hectic weeknight. Using home-made tomato sauce and adding all that spinach makes it much healthier, too!! I also added some garlic and basil as per redhen1970's recommendation and it was yummy."

"I was really impressed with this dish!! Delicious!!! I added a half pound of ground beef to the sauce that I browned and drained, but only because my son thinks there has to be meat in any main dish. I was also generous with the cheese and sauce. Normally I don't find too much I like in dishes that are five ingredients or less, but this one was a major exception. It really does taste like lasagna!"
