My family and I really liked this lasagne. I made it with zucchini. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that the end product was extremely watery. I will try sauteeing the zucchini first to get the excess moisture out next time I make this. Thanks for a very good South Beach Diet-Friendly recipe.
