Lovely on a Tasmanian summer evening, I added hot smoked salmon to make it a bit more of a complete meal. This is a winner Miss Martha, thank you! My girlfriend was MOST impressed, I might be lucky tonight...

Made this last night with tomatoes, zucchini and garlic from my garden. Stirred a little pesto into the tomato mixture while it was still warm, served with grilled sausage on the side. A real winner!

This is a delicious, fresh summer recipe and a great way to use late summer tomatoes from your garden. My contribution: if you don't mind the ricotta running a bit, then assemble with the tomato mixture still warm. My 9-year old daughter and I agreed that next time we make it we will let the tomatoes cool to room temp and assemble with less ricotta - a little goes a long way when layering it. It would be a great dish to make for lunch for friends or an easy prepare in advance summer supper.

This was delicious and very easy! I actually used low fat cottage cheese in place of ricotta and also added a little mozzarella to the mix. Can't wait to have it again. Very light and great for summer!

I love a lot of Martha's recipes however why do they not give all the nutritional value of their recipes? I am with Weight Watchers and would love to have this broken down so I may be able to evaluate my Points Plus for recipes. Thank you

This was wonderful! So easy and so delicious! I love ricotta, so I used more than in the recipe. I used the no-boil thin lasagna noodles (you can boil them, 3 minutes), which worked perfectly. I also warmed the ricotta mixture just a little in the microwave.

I just made this with al dente pasta pappardelle noodles and it was so good and so fresh. Perfect for summer.
