    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.

      Great recipe. I wanted to make lasagne but was out of ricotta. I altered this a bit. I used grilled eggplant slices instead of ground beef and used no-boil lasagne noodles. I also substituted a mild white cheddar-like cheese for some of the mozzarella.

      Oh, thanks for sharing this recipe. I have my own lasagna recipe (a "petite" lasagna for 2 big pieces instead of the usual 6 or 9 pieces). So I didn't follow the recipe exactly, but I threw in extra spaghetti sauce, mozzarella & Parmesan cheese into the meat mix as directed. I don't even think my husband noticed the lack of ricotta--he doesn't mind ricotta but we don't normally keep it in the house so this is a great alternative way to have lasagna. thanks so much again!
