  • Needs a bit more flavor, maybe some Italian spices and I used salt. Might make it again, but I'll just use noodles and make it a lasagna. - 2/1/09

  • Very close to what I was looking for. I had salmon ricotta bake - gluten free - at a restaurant. Loved the flavor and texture and wanted something similar, I like spinach. - 1/6/09
