This was some delicious vegetable lasagna. I was looking for one that had the broccoli/spinach combo (love it!). I used 2 tbs. of sherry (and 1 tbs. water), but didn't taste it so will go with the full amount next time. I didn't have the aha herb season so I used garlic salt and pepper. I also made a homemade pasta sauce (garlic, basil, oregano). This really hit the spot and am glad to have leftovers! Thanks Joy, for posting. Roxygirl
