I used fresh spinach instead of frozen, and instead of jarred spaghetti sauce I used tomato puree and some white sauce mixed. I even skipped the ricotta because I didn't have any, but this was so flavorful I didn't miss it. I also used regular lasagna noodles instead of no-cook.

I don't like chocolate chip cookies, but this is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe I've ever made. I left out the vanilla/white chips and stuck to chocolate chips, and the texture and flavor of this cookie dough is unreal. Recipe courtesy of Classic Pillsbury Cookies, Brownies, and Bars.
This is my absolute favorite recipe of the year so far. Wow. Wow. Wow. Something about the combination of spinach and mozzarella and tomatoes with beans that is heavenly comfort food at its finest. Feel free to substitute any kind of beans or use kale or swiss chard in place of the spinach. Recipe courtesy of Spilling the Beans.
I've never made garden-fresh beets before, and I hate the canned ones and the pickled ones. A friend grew them in their garden, and this was a terrific way to eat them. They grow here in Idaho so it's probably about time I cooked some. Recipe courtesy of Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook.
I made this with ground beef and fresh garden tomatoes. I also had some homemade tomato sauce I added garden grown parsley and oregano. I didn't have ricotta cheese, but I prefer cottage cheese anyway. Tasty stuff. Recipe courtesy of McCall's Casserole Cookbook.
