Here we take basic lasagna ingredients—ricotta cheese, pasta and tomatoes—and skip the layering and long baking time to make a super-quick and satisfying meal for the whole family.

I loved this dish. I used a fresh tomato instead of canned and threw in some fresh basil and thyme. I also minced my garlic to give it a stronger flavor. Next time I'll add little bit of tomato paste but other than that I wouldn't change a thing. Yum.


my husband REALLY enjoyed this meal. I enjoyed the time it took to make it especially. very tasty. I added tomato paste as well as other spices to jazz it up.


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.
