"Absolutely delicious! I used fresh beet greens instead of spinach and it was the best lasagna I've ever had. It was so easy too. I would recommend this recipe to anyone."

"Delicious! I didn't have chopped onions or the dried basil. I used an Italian four cheeses blend in lieu of mozzarella. This is one dish the entire family enjoyed!"

"Made this for my family last night and instead of making it in a 9X13 pan I put it into 2 foil cake pans and put one in the freezer for later. Everyone loved it!"
