  1. I put this recipe in too small a pan and it bubbled and spilled all over my oven, making a horrible mess -- all entirely my fault -- but you know what? I don't care a bit because it was the tastiest recipe I have had in ages!! Meat and two veg all covered in a creamy, garlicky sauce and baked until golden brown. How you could call that anything less than incredibly yummy I do not know. I also like to call it delicious, mouthwatering, scrumptious, irresistable and definitely a comfort food. My only recommendation? Make sure you use the right sized pan :-)
  2. My family and I devoured your lasagna. I can't remember when I have seen them go at their dinner with so much enjoyment. WOW, my compliments to you. The layers of vegetables with the cream sauce and cheese were incredibly rich and delicious. I agree with what some of the others have said about the Italian sausage providing awesome flavor, too. It wasn't all that hard to put together either. I can add this to our growing list of favorite recipes from Nurse Di. Thanks.
  3. This lasagna is the BEST. Total comfort food for my and my husband. The potatoes were so tender and we thought the Italian sausage gave this excellent flavor. The mushrooms and spinach and cheese make this extraordinary and scrumptious. Thanks Nurse Di. for a fabulous dish.
  4. Yum, yum, yummers!!! This is so rich, so creamy, so incredibly delicious. The Italian sausage gives a very distinct flavor. The veggies and cream sauce all go together very well. A culinary taste extravaganza!! This one goes down in my best of the best category. Thanks Nurse Di. Your recipes are amazing.
  5. This needed a bit of tweaking for my taste. I added more garlic, more parmesan, doubled the sausage ,used less cottage cheese and a lot of fresh ground black pepper.


  1. Will definitely make this one again. It made a lot, so I think I will be freezing some of it. I used broccoli instead of spinach and it was still great. I may make a little more of the ricotta chesse mixture next time to add, otherwise...yummy!!
  2. My family loved this!!! I did substitute ricotta cheese for the cottage cheese, as we are just not big cottage cheese people!!! I also sprinkled a little Italian seasoning too, which added great flavor!! Definitely will be a regular dish around our house from now on!!!
  3. This is fantastic!! I tried the recipe as is and loved it. The next time I added sun-dried tomatoes to the spinach mixture and substituted a small fennel bulb for the onions in the white sauce. Delicious!!
