  1. Don't want to sound like a dummy, do the lasagna noodles need to be cooked??


  1. The most horrible mess I've ever tasted!
  2. WOW!!! What an easy and superb tasting lasagna. Never has lasagna been so easy to fix! I can't wait to try this with chicken, beef, or veggies. SOOOO good! Made for Zingo, ZWT4. (-: Thanks.
  3. Delicious! It tastes like you put a ton of effort this dish, when in fact it is a snap to prep! I almost always have the ingredients on hand for this and will be making it again. I used fresh dill, basil, and oregano from my herb garden. I thought the Dill/Ricotta mixture was brilliant! The only tiny change I might make is to add a little galic and/or garlic salt. I would also like to try the addition of crab meat which another reviewer mentioned. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. P.S-. DH also gave you 2 thumbs up ! Made for Zingo ZWT4
  4. "Make this again, Mom," said my 12yo son. "This is very good," added my husband, "the more I eat it, the more I like it." Even picky 3yo son declared it good! Thanks! Reviwed for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap 16
  5. I made homemade spaghetti sauce and used it in this recipe. We all loved it as written but substituted FF half and half for the whipping cream. I also used the addition of the parmesan cheese, which I think really adds a lot of flavor. I used fresh crab and shrimp. Excellent combo!
