My husband refuses to eat anything with Ricotta Cheese. I tried several different versions and this was his favorite. Now, it's the only lasagna I fix.

I hate ricotta (and almost every other cheese) so I was thrilled to find this recipe. It is very good and simple to make but more importantly my husband and kids love it too! I've made it several times following the exact recipe and it is wonderful. Tonight I added thin strips of zucchini from our garden- yum!
