    Very tasty. I only used half the amount of ricotta cheese. It was a little too watery. I think I will add eggplant next time.

    Would definitely make again very tasty and easy. My son would not eat it but he doesn’t like pasta everyone else liked it. Added red chili flakes. Next time I might try and make lower fat and add more spinach.
    Simple and tasty recipe. Kid friendly. Added to #meatlessMonday collection.

    Perfect! Was absolutely delicious! Used fresh spinach & sauté with plenty of garlic.

    So good! I used fresh sautéed spinach in with the ricotta which looked and tasted great. I used Rao’s arrabbiata jar sauce. Also, after it was done, I put it under the broiler for a minute because I like a well done crust. Will definitely make again!

    This turned out really well. I added some onion while sautéing the spinach and took the advice to pop the spinach mix in the food processor. I had a toddler so stringy bits don't go down so well. I used a bit more ricotta and spinach *for 4, 250g pack ricotta and approx 250g spinach and arrabbiata sauce was 360g. I just added about 2 tablespoons of water and used dried lasagna sheets. cooked in 40mins @200 C. We really enjoyed it, and I will certainly make it again.

    Made 6 days ago and had to make it again, this time with arrabbiata sauce! Replaced Rosemary in place of Thyme and it was good! Definitely added Italian seasoning and extra nutmeg! Love it!!

    Maybe more ricotta and spice

    The basics are there, but it really needed some other herbs and spices. It was definitely tasty and a good jumping off point for any lasagna. I added things like mushrooms, onions, and ground turkey for the hubby.
    UNBELIEVABLY DELICIOUS!!!! Made this last night and am still thinking about it... Thanks for the recipe. Seriously. Thank you.

    Delicious! Sadly I didn't have any eggs so I used peanut butter as a substitute. It still tastes great!

    Yum yum yummies (as we say in our family)! Great and easy recipe. I went ahead and used full fat ricotta- might try a "skinnier" version next time but I always like to try the "real" thing first, and it did it disappoint. Used more garlic than called for and loved it- we're garlic lovers tho. Did do the extra step with the processor and glad I did, turned out great. Might try again and sneak some soy meat into the mix, for the meat eaters in the family.

    This was the best lasgana my husband and I ever had. Even Garfield would be impressed. Our cat came over immediately once it was on the table looking for the lasgana (no, he didn't get any). I could make this ten times over. I cannot wait to make this for family and friends over the years to come. I am even excited for left overs for lunch and dinner! Amazing dish!

    We added some different spices and used half ricotta and half cottage cheese instead of all ricotta. It was pretty good, just still getting used to the spinach texture. (Ground but still noticeable) My seven year old didn't eat as much as she normally does with lasagna, but she ate most of a piece. It came out to 294 calories for 1/9th with how we made it. Or 221 for 1/12th but we like bigger pieces. :)

    Loved it! Easy and the family raved over it. Definitely will make again.

    This was delicious! I may have reordered the cheeses a little (mozzarella in the spinach) and used the ricotta in a cheese sauce instead of only mozzarella cheese, but this was such a delicious recipe!

    Very good, a tad bland. I'll throw in some more spices the next time, but it's a really good baseline vegetarian lasagna
