    This was really good! It did take a lot of prep time and cooking time, but it was all worth it. Only thing I did different was use no boil lasagna noodles (same amount of cooking time) and added more mushrooms.

    This is classic comfort food (with nutritious veggies hidden inside)! I follow the recipe exactly. There is a lot of prep time, but it's worth it. I often give this lasagna (prepped but not cooked) to friends who just had a baby, with an index card with baking instructions. It's even good the next day cold!

    I have made this dish several times and it is always a hit. I use the no bake noodles. It only makes enough to fill an 8X8 pan so you might have to double the recipe if you are serving more than 4 people. I just sent it to a friend who asked for it after I served it to her for dinner. You will not be disappointed!

    This was really better than I anticipated! I actually skipped the onions and shredded the carrots, bell pepper and zucchini. This reduced any prep time that I read in the other reviews.The mushrooms remained sliced and I used bottled tomato sauce and pesto, which is why I wasn't sure this would be as good as it was. I also used the no boil noodles and this came out perfect.

    A good recipe if you're looking for healthy lasagna. I followed the recipe exactly. If I make it again, I will add some mozzarella cheese between the lasagna noodle layers. I also think that the pasta sauce makes a big difference. I used Mario Batali sauce and it was very liquidy and kind of bland tasting (even though it costs like $8.00 a jar). Will definitely choose something else in the future.

    This was a hit with my family. I used shredded zucchini and carrots. Didn't have red onion, so I used 1/2 a vidalia. I almost doubled the recipe to fit a 9x13 dish. I think the carrots and zucchini might work better if sliced, like the recipe says. I will be doing this again.

    This was the first lasagna recipe I've ever made and it came out great. I added my own list of vegetables (yellow pepper, orange pepper, onion, 2 types of mushrooms). I also used low-fat ricotta to make it healthier. The pesto is not really necessary as you don't taste it in the final dish. The leftovers also tasted very good the next day.

    Really enjoyed this dish. Changed the veggies just a tad: shredded carrots, green pepper, red & vidalia onion, mushrooms. Would have loved zucchini, but being winter, I did not have any. Used the CL basic marinara for my sauce. Skipped the pesto. Used no boil noodles (same cooking time). Subbed cottage cheese for the ricotta, due to personal preference. Added some grated parmesan in with the cottage cheese layer. Meat lover boyfriend also thought this was good. Had enough for 2 servings & 2 lunches. Tastes even better the next day!

    Prepared this last night for dinner. My family LOVED it - excellent flavor and my husband said he preferred this over traditional (meat) lasagna! Will make this again and again!

    Look good, but quick question - don't you need an egg for the ricotta mixture part? I feel like every time I've made lasagna I've had to add an egg to the cheese mixture.

    This was really good! Very flavorful. I loved the slight crunchiness of the carrots in the mix. Will definitely make again.
