@ChicFoodist:  I find that lasagna layered with just mozzarella and your filling is very good.  My favorite fillings are crumbled Italian sausage in marinara, sauteed spinach and mushrooms in marinara or alfredo, and sauteed seafood with garlic and alfredo.

We use tofu and honey!  I have a dairy allergy and LOVE me some lasagne.  So we found a dairy free receipe.

I’ve used bolognaise meat sauce, bolognaise mushroom sauce, shredded spinach and ricotta, or an egg, three parts thickened cream, two parts grated cheese and shredded spinach beaten together in a cheese sauce. All are pretty tasty, but as I use my stick blender to shred my spinach, anything with spinach in it looks a nasty shade of green.

Have you tried sweet potato lasange? I make a white sauce using ricotta, parmesan, egg yolk and black pepper to go with it Smile also works well with butternut squash!

I’ve subbed a mix of cream cheese or neufatzchel cheese and mozzerella for ricotta and it’s delicious… I didn’t think it would be but it’s so creamy and just yum! Try it!

Bechemal sauce.  Once you have bechamel, you will never want ricotta again. 

I use this recipe but don’t bother with the homemade noodles and usually i just make a quick red sauce instead of the bolognese, the bolognese is more of a special occasion type dish. I actually halve the bechemal sauce, it seems to be enough for me for a medium sized lasagna.

Anyway, seriously, try it.  It is so good.
