  • Good, but 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!

  • This 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 delicious!!

  • This 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.

  • Fabulous 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!

  • Fabulous 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.

  • 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 great recipe!!

  • I just 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.

  • I made 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
