I will use more sauce on each layer next time.
Yesss! This is the
lasagna recipe I have been looking for!! I used a little less pasta,
however, and I pureed the cheese-spinach-onion mixture in the food
processor. It reminds me of Chicago-style deep-dish pizza. We won't
have to worry about throwing out the old leftovers! This lasagna is
restaurant-quality. Thanks so much!
lasagna was excellent. I think it could have more
spinach to actually be considered spinach
lasagna, but boy was it good! And my boyfriend
(not a regular cook) made it and it was still
recipe is a very good twist on a classic dish. If
you use fresh herbs and garlic your kitchen
smells divine. The multi-step process may put
ants in your kids pants, but they'll enjoy
layering the lasagna if carefully supervised. All
in all, one of the best lasagnas I've tried.
lasagna recipe. A hit with the boyfriend, who is
a cook in an Italian restaurant, so you know it
must be good! Thanks for the recipe!
recipe. Especially when used in conjunction with
the spaghetti sauce recipe at this link: http://recipes.robbiehaf.com/S/203.htm used frozen spinach as opposed
to fresh, so it was about triple the fresh amount
listed, and I also coated the bottom of the dish
with sauce and used more sauce between layers.
Overall a very delicious recipe. Definitely worth
the effort. Thank you.
very much. It was delicious and we are still
enjoying it. I even froze half of it! This is my
favorite lasagna recipe. I did add more spinach,
garlic and sauce but I was happy to find such a
wanted to say that this was a huge success. I am
a 20 year old girl, in college, and have a small
kitchen in my condo. I made this in my kitchen
with ease, which is often hard to do. I cooked
this dish for my mom and dad tonight and they
just LOVED IT!!! I would have to agree with the
others...a little more sauce in the layers makes
a difference...and a little more spinach gives it
a more spinach taste. Thanks again for this
recipe...for once I got to give my mom the
recipe, instead of the other way around.
this Lasagna and the measurements seemed a little
off. Most of the ricotta mixture doesn't add up
to 6 cups like it was suggesting, so I just
layered it enough until I felt it was right.
Great recipe though, even without the mushrooms
(which I don't like) gonna try mixing it with
Italian Sausage though as well
