Loved this recipe. I used more than 3 cups of steamed veggies because I wanted it to be very filling. I used zucchini, mushrooms, and broccoli. (steamed them in a covered, microwavable glass bowl with a smidge of water in the bottom, 3-4 minutes) Used a whole jar of Giada's pasta sauce in the recipe. I didn't have no-boil noodle on hand, so I did have to cook my noodles...a bit more on the al dente side. This is a good basic veggie lasagna that can be adapted to your veggie preference and it went together easily. :)

It was alright, not exactly my thing but still pretty good. I used Small curd low fat cottage cheese like someone else said in their comment, since tofu and ricotta is a bit expensive for me, and a Mexican mix of frozen veggies - corn, red bell pepper, broccoli, Cauliflower. Think I'd steam the veggies a bit more next time, some of them, even after a light steaming and the oven cooking time were a bit hard to bite into.

this was easy enough to use the veggies I had in the fridge. I used thinly sliced zucchini, squash and mushrooms and I used spicy marinara sauce. thanks!
