Are you adding an additional egg to the ricotta or instead of adding it to the cauliflower/mozarella?

This is on the menu this week and think I will double it.......

Thanks for sharing..this sure look yummy

TIA

I'm making a shopping list right now for this... artichoke hearts, olives, CAULIFLOWER!

You've done it again, Cleo! Will report back with the results.

TX-- They're adding extra egg to the ricotta to extend the ricotta.

Thanks for reporting back with results! It is wonderful knowing everyone's results and tweaks! It's like a slumber party--for food.

I added the extra egg also to the ricotta mix. I have all my life. It makes the ricotta very smooth and extends it. This is very wonderful.

I usually use cottage cheese mixed with parmesan instead of ricotta. this time around, I went for the r. I appreciate the egg tip! I seriously didn't know so many mix egg with the ricotta!

I made the lasagna and oopsie rolls for the first time last night. I can't believe that I do not miss the noodles one tiny bit. Amazing! I don't think I added enough cauliflower though. Since I doubled the recipe, I weighed 10oz of fresh cauliflower first, cooked it, let drain and cool. I didn't have enough to make solid layers even after adding an egg. Oh well, no biggie . It's still yummy!

I used a bread pan, and those are only about 3-4" wide at best. It's easier to spread out cauli over that small a surface. I sprinkle and press.

I am so glad you didn't miss the noodles! I love lasagna, and I've always been someone who made my noodles from scratch in my kitchen (rolled them out, kneaded them, etc), and am ok with not having noodles. I just hated always feeling hungry because of the high-carb noodles. It's nice to be able to eat something and feel satisfied by decadence, and not by scrambled eggs (like the last time I did Atkins).

This is in the oven now.

I screwed on the layers so hope it still works (my fault).
While I doubled the recipe I think my pan was too big...
I will try the bread loaf pan next time.
If I double the recipe can I still use the bread loaf pan?

I used two bread loaf pans for my double recipe. If you're using just the basic recipe (no toppings) I bet it could all fit in one standard size loaf pan. My loaf pans are a little smaller than what is standard (4.5 x 8.5 x 3). If I didn't use ground beef I bet I could have put a double batch in one.

I've posted the recipe for print publication for the Denver Post and Rocky Mountain News. Would you tell me if you think the site loads slowly? It would be much appreciated!

The Denver Post website loads quicker than Rocky Mountain News website, but I wouldn't classify either as slow.

I keep hearing locally that the site loads slowly. Maybe it's the altitude? It is sometimes really slow for me as well!

Maybe it could have something to do with the amount of traffic at the time you're viewing it? Just a thought.

That could be! I am so not technical. It helps having other opinions, because I'm never sure if I'm just technologically numpty or if the site is slow--or my system is slow-- or my connection is slow.

No matter what, it all comes back to me = slow somewhere along the line.

Load fast for me Cleo!! Looks great! Could be the time of day or your internet connection. I have High Speed Cable and it loads fast for me.

Going to make me another cauliflower pizza and make the Lasagna next week.

HUGS
