Cook's Notes

No-boil noodles save time because you don't have to boil them; they soften as they absorb the liquid from other ingredients.

    this can't be Martha's recipe! low fat ricotta? reduced fat cream cheese? no fresh herb in sight? The recipe SCREAMS for flavor

    This is a Martha Stewart recipe? Hard to believe it didn't come from somebody else at her web site. There is NO flavor. Where are the herbs? Where is the grated cheese? And adding cream cheese ... for what purpose? it gave the lasagna a weird flavor, not one I like, unfortunately. Martha should have forgotten the cream cheese and doctored up the ricotta to give this bland recipe some flavor. Won't make this again. Very disappointing recipe from MS.

    I was skeptical the lasagna had no "sauce", but it came out great! I only had salmon flavored cream cheese, so took a gamble. I was surprised at how well the flavors combined! I used salt, ground mixed peppercorns, italian seasoning and Lawry's Garlic Salt for spices. I rate this recipe a 5 star for simplicity and "flexibility" of ingredients; it was still delicious when altering some of the ingredients. I like the idea of adding more vegetables or a seafood lasagna!

    I love this. I add a layer of ground turkey or chicken to make it more substantial. Then I have to add more ricotta, etc., but it is a great recipe to play with. I saute onion and garlic with the turkey. My husband and I both like this a lot.

    Delicious and very simple to make. Next time, I'm going to include additional vegetables, such as carrots and squash.

    I would like to make this and freeze it, does anyone know if you can freeze the no boil noodles before baking?

    With a few modifications, this recipe was a hit. I sauteed the zucchini with some onion and garlic and added a little white wine to the mixture. Also, I used whole milk ricotta and used half of the cream cheese. I substituted the dried oregano with dried italian seasoning. It was outstanding!

    definitely make sure you have the right sized pan for your noodles! mine were for a 9 inch pan, not 8 inch ... regardless I only had a 10 inch so kind of had to fudge it. but the recipe is delish, just make sure you have the right equipment first.

    I'm writing an A review. I felt this recipe was delicious. I used the slicing blade on the food processor to finely slice the zucchini. Also, I whisked the ricotta and cream cheese together. Don't be afraid of adding the salt and pepper, it definitely flavors the cheese. Also - I grated smoked mozzarella for the top, which is what I had on hand, which added a nice smoky touch.

    Sorry, but this was not that good. The cream cheese flavor was definitely weird. It could have also benefited from some liquid, maybe from crushed tomatoes or something. I think full fat cheese, without the cream cheese would have made a big difference. Oh well.
