    I had trouble with eggplant the one time I tried it, but have been wondering how to make a lasagna without noodles, so I am going to try this. I also wondered about the cottage cheese, but will try it with ricotta, and may add a couple things like the mushrooms and see if I can handle that. - 2/17/20

    I love making lasagne especially when cleaning out refrigerator of small portions left over. I had a cup of cottage cheese left so I mixed with a cup of ricotta; added broccoli, shredded carrots, collard greens and black beans; 2 cups sharp cheese with 2 cups of mozzarella. No turkey added. YUM! - 3/31/18

    Saw this somewhere else and made, I do like this but I cannot call it Lasagna. As lasagna, I get complaints; as Italian veggie casserole (Honestly!), the family liked it, except for DH but he has issues with eggplant, so now that will only be in half the casserole. - 2/17/18
