This was pretty good, and I will definitely make it again. But, it's fairly mild. I'd like to punch up the spiciness next time: more curry powder, some red chili powder, more garlic. Otherwise, super yummy, and comforting, and better on day two.

Tough way to find out my nut allergic kid included coconut! Until that time, we were enjoying this dish!

I was excited to try this but worried it would be weird, but it was so good! We really enjoyed this recipe. Great change of pace from regular lasagna.

Very unique and tasty. We love curry so it was a special treat. As with all lasagna, it was even better on day 2. Always fun to try something different
