I thought this was yummy! I wasn't sure what to expect due to the widely differing reviews, and I have to say I was pleased that I took a chance on this one. I scaled it down to one serving which I baked in a 6 oz au gratin dish--perfect! I did add a Tbsp of extra cheese on top, and instead of ricotta I used cottage cheese since I had some on hand. I was also generous with the garlic and I added a few slices of summer squash to the sauteed veggies. Yum! I will definitely make this again, as I imagine it can only be yummier made in the full amount. Thanks for posting! Made for Healthy Choices 2008!
