Made this for dinner last night...OMG! Delicious! I halved the recipe, except for spinach & veg. soup mix, substituted cottage cheese for the ricotta & cooked for 5 hours on low in a 3 qt. crock pot. So good, you won't miss the meat. I'll be making this again!
Delicious! I made it for a luncheon at work. Even the people on a low carb diet got two helpings! I used 2 bottles of a spicy spaghetti sauce. I didn't have any left over to serve with it but it was moist and yummy without it. I think I may add more spinach next time. Glad I found this recipe.
I also found this on the back of the Lipton box and decided to try it. For being a meatless dish, I was extremely filling and hearty. I almost followed the ingredients as written, with the exception that I didn't use all of the name brands suggested and I subbed low-fat, low-cost cottage cheese for the ricotta. I followed the instructions and cooked it on Low for about 5 1/2 hours and it came out divine! My daughter (who "hates" spinach) had two helpings before she even questioned what the green stuff was. The veggie soup really punches up the flavor and I think I may even start adding it to the cottage cheese mixture in my traditional lasagna. Thank you for posting! This is going into the keeper file!
