    This was a fairly labour intensive recipe, but the results were fantastic. Adequate seasoning and a perfect amount of cheese. Spaghetti squash worked so well. Make this!

    Fantastic! Great recipe though a bit labor intensive. Make sure to drain and squeeze out the water from the squash AND the steamed spinach. Also reduce the sauce greatly otherwise you’ll have a watery mess. Fortunately I’ve baked with fresh squash before so I know you have to practically wring it out. I used a bunch of paper towels and a sieve to press out the water. For the sauce I added a pound of sweet Italian sausage and a pound of hot Italian sausage along with the onions and garlic (omitted the olive oil as the meat has its own oil) and then tied a bundle of thyme, basil, rosemary, and parsley with cooking twine and threw that into the pot while simmering the sauce. I let the sauce cook down a good 1 1/2 hours it breaks down the tomatoes properly and releases the natural sugars, delicious! I added more cheese and more ricotta to the squash mixture in addition to two sprigs of chopped fresh basil. The result of my modifications is a hearty, flavorful meal that pleased my husband who is on a low-carb diet, will definitely make again. Yum!

    It was a little runny, found it hard to squeeze all the liquid from the squash plus the liquid from the spinach and ricotta, taste was good

    Made a dairy free version as well and it worked well, forgot to add spinach so just layered it on after spaghetti squash mixture

    Lasagne, Italian pronunciation: [laˈzaɲɲe], singular lasagna) are wide, flat-shaped pasta, and possibly one of the oldest types of pasta.[1] "Lasagne", or the singular "lasagna", commonly refers to a dish made with several layers of lasagne sheets alternated with sauces and other ingredients, such as meats and cheese.

    Excellent recipe although a little time consuming to prepare. Didn't have 11 × 8 pan so used 13 x 9 and it worked well.
