I'm not sure where this recipe came from but it is absolutely wonderful. DH loves this and its a good way to get him to eat spinach.

You're right! This is absolutely delicious and I have been making it for years. It is from a cookbook I have called Betty Crockers Recipes for Today (1988). When I make this, I don't change a thing (and it IS a good way to sneak in the spinach - I love it but DH does not!). Thanks for posting - now I can add this to my shopping list right off of the Zaar!

This was pretty good, and pretty easy to make. I made it around noon and refrigerated it, then we baked it around 5:30 p.m. I followed the ingredients exactly, and it tasted great. I used Barilla no-boil noodles, and there were no issues with them being too undercooked or anything. I gave it 4 stars because my lasagna turned out quite runny, even after letting it rest (after baking) for a bit - so I couldn't take a good picture to post! I think if I make this again I might try to reduce the liquid in it somehow. Also, I agree that sliced mushrooms would be a good addition, and maybe fresh spinach. Made for Fall PAC 2012.

Very nice. I had ricotta to use up, so substituted it for the cottage cheese, and because of a helpful review I reduced the milk to 1 1/2 cups. The texture was perfect.
