I used fresh, chopped tomatoes instead of the canned ones, and it was great! I used a heavy hand on the red pepper flakes and added about a tablespoon of Italian spice mix. After reading the comment about warming it up to make it creamier, I did just that - and it was great!
Agree that it could use a lot of spicing up. And replace canned tomatoes with pasta sauce.
I thought this recipe was great. I made it as is with a heavy hand on the crushed red pepper. I had to keep it warm in the oven and it melted the ricotta slightly. It made the dish creamier, giving it the sensation of a lasagna. I agree with others that you can add meat but I think it is great without it. And fresh baby spinach works the best for me.
Used 1lb 93% lean ground beef, chunky jarred marinara sauce, fat free ricotta and frozen chopped spinach. Turned out great, but was a little spicy for our toddler (used the crushed red pepper).
