    Sue Lau's Note:

    Now that it's just me and my husband at most dinners, a big lasagna becomes a burden with the leftovers which I don't like to either freeze or eat for days on end This version is much smaller, but with all the same flavor you'd expect.

      I think this recipe is a great starting point for a small lasagna for two, and I love how well the lasagna noodles fit the loaf pan. Next time, I think I'll do the layers differently so that the ricotta mixture and mozzarella are more evenly spread throughout the dish, but that is the only thing I would change. Thanks for a great recipe!

      We must have the worlds smallest loaf pans... could explain a lot about my bread making abilities lol This was awesome! Made 2 loaf pans for us so we got 2 dinners and a lunch out of it. Will gladly make this again. Thank you again Sue for a great recipe, we really enjoyed it.
