I've made this quite a few times over the past few years, just now getting around to rating it. I love this recipe. Slightly different than the usual and very good!

Very good Lasagna. I cooked this several weeks ago and it was well received. I was a little worried about using the spinach because my husband says he doesn't like it but he ate every bite. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

This was a really good lasagne recipe. I was pleasantly suprised by the flavor of the Classico sauces. I made this recipe without the wine or sugar. I used ground beef and the sun-dried tomato alfredo sauce. Next time I will used ground pork and try the wine and sugar in the marinara. I'm really impressed with how easy it was to throw together, but I thought that it needed some more flavor. I'll probably add some onion to the meat and some fresh parsley and oregano to the cheese mixture. Thank you for posting a recipe that is so quick and has so many possiblities. I will be passing this one along.
