    Irishcolleen's Note:

    Oh, how I love Italian food! I especially love those dishes like this one, made with delicious cheeses! I use a slightly sweet marinara sauce, but use whatever recipe you like. Delizioso!

      This was fabulous! Due to a large family I made lots (2 batches in 1 large tray), so I doubled the ricotta cheese (not the other cheeses) and doubled the spinach. I also left out the eggs (due to an allergy) and swapped for 2 TB of milk. I used my own pasta sauce recipe (doubled that too). Served with garlic bread. A great recipe that has no meat and still creates empty plates. Thanks for posting!
