We really enjoyed this! It was a nice change from the traditional pasta based lasagne. I also added some chopped red pepper (green pepper would be good too), and a sprinkle of hot chilies. Quick to make, lower in carbs, and very yummy! We're looking forward to the leftovers today. Thanks for posting.
