I'm not a vegetarian and I love this recipe. It's quick, the right size, healthy and yet very satisfying. I originally made it from the magazine and found it posted here! I love that it's in an 8x8 pan. Just the right size for 2 -4 and quick and easy to make. I have other lasagna recipes I make that take hours and are wonderful, but this is my go to recipe when I just want to make a good dinner without it taking all day. Thanks for posting, but sorry I didn't do it first!!!
Made this last night for dinner. I was having a friend over and wanted something that did not require a lot of chopping. I thought this was really tasty and my friend enjoyed it as well. We were generous in our heap of red pepper flakes and used homemade goat cheese. DH did not care for this recipe, however, but determined it was because he does not like kale. I would have this again. Thanks!
