    Tish's Note:

    This recipe proves that you can eat your favorite Italian food without worrying about the fat! It can be made vegetarian by omitting the ground beef, doubling the amount of soy sauce and balsamic vinegar and using vegetable stock instead of chicken stock.

      Fantastic. Only change that I made was adding 2 oz of brandy to ground beef mixtures. My Dad, who is a very light eater had seconds. It is a good thing that I made a double recipe.

      Loved this! I browned 1lb of extra lean beef and seasoned with Italian spices. Combined 1/2 lb of the beef with other veggies, filled the rest in when I was layering and needed more coverage. Next time will definitely use the whole 32 oz of pasta sauce to layer, was a little drier than my taste. For those of you who are following the nutrition facts on the size, they are a little skewed because the ricotta cheese isn't factored in. Wonderful dish that will be made again and again- Thank you!
