I have made this twice. It was easy to make, but very bland the first time. The second time, I added italian seasoning, carrots, zuccini, and cooked ground turkey to add flavor. Add the seasoning when you are browning the garlic and onions. Add the zuccini and carrots when the onions & garlic are about half way done. As a lower fat alternative, I used grated parmasean cheese instead of ricotta. It was good that way.
