OMG, I can't believe a recipe this good has been on the site that long without any reviews. Most are probably looking for the more traditional lasagna (with tomato/spaghetti sauce). Initially I missed that there were no tomatoes but I sure didn't miss them in the flavour. I used fresh (vs dried) herbs, increased meat & added some italian sausage & lastly I used yogurt in place of the cream/milk. For 1 oz of cheese I shredded (vs sliced) to finish off the top layer to ensure an even layer & no drying of the bottom layers. As far as lasagna's go, this one was fairly easy to put together. Thanks so much for a great recipe.
