Oh yum! I also saw this on the unreviewed recipes thread, just took me til this weekend to get around to making it. It's wonderful. Oldest DS wasn't that impressed but my other 2 kids and hubby loved it. I used oven ready noodles and cottage cheese instead of ricotta coz that's what I had on hand. I'll use regular noodles next time tho. These were a little tough. Thanks for a great recipe!
I accidentally gave another poster a review on this recipe, and then realized I had clicked on the wrong thing! Well YOU are the one all the credit belongs to. I served this to 10 people today, after having it stashed away in my dessert folder for 4 years. They just about licked their plates. The topping is genious! I will be making this a lot and so will 10 happy people, who went home with a new dessert to wow their friends and family with. Thanks for sharing.
Delicious, and the mixture of ingredients is great. My only problem was with the corner pieces. Some lasagna pieces were hard and could not be chewed. I used a knife to cut little pieces to eat it, for I could not get through it with a fork. But once I realized that that was the way to go, I loved it.
