Meatless Spinach Lasagna Recipe

This rich and cheesy crowd-pleaser is golden-topped and makes any gathering special. “It's comforting and hearty and so make-ahead convenient. I've even made it a week before, frozen it, then reheated the day guests arrive. It's yummy with a loaf of crusty bread and salad.” Barbara Carlucci - Orange Park, Florida

"This is really just too cheesy. Not much in the way of seasonings. Just more cheese.

I had hoped with the spinach and carrot, t would be okay, anyway. That was the problem --- it was just okay. We have a good number of other tastier options. Won't keep this recipe."

"Great base recipe but I agree with the earlier rating. it needs seasoning. I followed the recipe exactly but next time I will salt and pepper and maybe garlic the white sauce. A touch of nutmeg in with the spinach portion would be lovely too. I was excited to try this white sauce meatless lasagna- delicious!"

"This needs seasoning and flavor. I added two cloves of garlic in the butter at the start of it and also added garlic salt and fresh ground pepper to the cream sauce. I chopped up five green onions and added to the ricotta mix too. Turned out very tasty. As written this sounded very bland."
