    Really liked this, 1yo DS did not...I made it for him because he loves veggie lasagna. Oh well! Seems this dish is just lacking a little substance, I think it's because I prefer ricotta over cottage cheese. Other than that, this is a great standard to keep in your cookbook!

    I enjoyed this- dh did not. I loved that it could be made ahead. Great choice for a dinner party. If you are not watching the fat and calories you may want to up the cheese value which imho is where dh lost it. Thanks for a great recipe Crafty.

    Very easy and tasty. This recipe combines some of my favorite ingredients - spinach, cheese and noodles. I followed the recipe exactly using freshly shredded Parmesan and mozzarella. I did use plain tomato sauce, and didn't have time to season it so I just sprinkled some Italian seasoning on top. Oh, and I didn't have any wooden toothpicks, so I used some wooden skewers that I already had. Toothpicks would be better since they would make everything fit into one pan for baking more easily. Made for My 3 Chefs.

    Total Winner! I used whole wheat lasagna noodles, which DH hates, and you couldn't even tell because the flavors from all the other ingredients were just so wonderful. Very filling and looks very elegant for something so easy! Thank you!


<p>Update: &nbsp;I have changed my profile picture in honor of my dear best friend and loyal companion that I lost to cancer on 6/25/11. Maxx was the best dog that anyone could ever hope to have in their life. &nbsp;Until we meet again, sweet boy, you will be forever in my heart and memories. I currently live in the country with two dogs (a 12 pound&nbsp;poodle mix&nbsp;named Suki and a new member to the family, a 7-month old(?) 7.5 pound terrier mix named Angel ). &nbsp; I got Angel from the dog pound a week after I lost my beloved Maxx. &nbsp;Suki and I both needed a new companion to help us cope with our loss. &nbsp;Nothing will ever replace Maxx, but she has helped to uplift Suki's spirit. I am a secretary for a county school board. I love to cook, bake, crochet, paint, sew, read and anything to do with crafts. I was born in Tokyo,Japan. My father was in the Air Force and my moher was Japanese. I love to cook (and eat) a variety of foods from many different nations. I especially like trying out new recipes and experimenting with both old and new recipes. I also love participating in the great Zaar events like the tag games, recipe swaps, and Zaar World Tours. I recently participated in my first RSC contest. I have definitely had a lot of fun since joining Recipezaar. Update - September 20, 2007 I am proud to announce that I have just been blessed with my first grandchild. My son and daughter-in-law have given me a beautiful little granddaughter. &nbsp;[URL=http://s183.photobucket.com/albums/x147/Crafty_Lady_13/?action=view&curren;t=f6fd3ae3.pbw][IMG]http://s183.photobucket.com/albums/x147/Crafty_Lady_13/th_102_0365-1.jpg[/IMG][/URL] Make Reservation Online Create your own visitor map *************************************************** [Reply]</p>
