    punkyluv's Note:

    from angelfire.com.UPDATE:1-13-09 made last night and hubby loved it,said it had nice flavors that blended well together. I sprinkled some italian seasoning in the ricotta mixture and i also sauted some mushrooms to layer with everything else but i forgot about them and ended up putting them on the top at the end and that actually worked really well.lol I used a 8x8 casserole dish.UPDATE 2-18-09: made this again and added some cooked chicken to the mix and it was great. I sprinkled the chicken with italian seasoning and grilled it on the george foreman. excellent!

      Really good dish! I would even add more spinach and maybe some sauteed mushrooms or any other veggies that sound good at the time. I like your idea about the chicken too! I stirred the pasta and ricotta mixture together because I was having problems layering it! Then I topped the whole thing with the spinach, sauce and mozzarella and it turned out great! The only thing is that it worked out to 5 points per serving. I had low fat ricotta instead of fat-free, but it shouldn't make that much of a difference. I also used high fibre white pasta. I am not complaining about the points! The size of the serving is great for lunch and 5 points for this isn't bad at all! Made for My 3 Chefs. Thanks! :)

      Just made this tonight. Loved it. The only problem I have is that I wasn't too clear on the layering instructions.. so my layers were awkward and didn't mix well, they were still just stuff laying on top of each other. I will have to play around and find a good way to get everything mixed better.
