    My husband is on a low sodium diet. I prepared this recipe but added more spices. Lots of basil, Mrs. Dash, and a no salt mix from Costco. I cooked the sauce in my slow cooker for an hour. Next time I will prepare the sauce the day before. My husband is now enjoying lasagna again. - 6/23/18

    Very helpful to be able to serve this dish to family members with various health needs. Specifically one directed with Congestive Heart Disease who was just directed to eat low-sodium on top of her already gluten-free eating. I adapted this with brown rice lasagna noodles. - 4/23/13
