Very Good. Even better the second day. My hubby and I made this last night and enjoyed it a lot. The only thing we did different was added a pound of lean ground meat and of course used everything lowfat or fat free and it still turned out to be a great meal.
Great meatless lasagna-like pasta. None of my boys or husband mentioned that there was no meat in it. I loved that it was saucy enough that it didn't dry out after baking. I only baked it for 40 minutes and that was plenty. Thanx!
