Oh my! 100 STARS! This was SO good. Really a snap to put together and much more delicious and inexpensive than waiting in line for a table at the local Olive Garden. The spinach was delicious and creamy, and the cheesy sauce could not be anything less than wonderful! I need to just stop my babbling and just get to the point: IF SOMEONE ELSE DOESN'T TRY THIS RECIPE, THEY ARE MISSING OUT. Thanks for sharing- I hope this lasagna doesn't remain "our little secret" for long"!!!!!! ~Sue
