I've changed the recipe to make it spicier plus added ricotta cheese to make it more hearty. If spicy is not your thing, you can get diced tomatoes with green chilies in a mild version.

I'm giving this four stars, but in fairness, I made so many changes I don't feel qualified to rate it as written. **Please Note** the serving size is only TWO!! I didn't notice this until I was putting it together, and realized I needed more food,requiring me to make so many changes. Also, I wasn't sure what a 1Qt baking dish was, so I improvised and not sure if that affected the outcome. Overall, the taste is good; lasagne-ish. I will try to make this again with the right proportions by adjusting the servings before getting started.

This was a pretty simple and light recipe to throw together.The only important adjustment I made was to season this mixture with salt and pepper.This makes a wonderful and healthy vegetable side dish to your meal.

This was delicious! I am doing Weight Watchers so I made it a little more "point friendly" by skipping all that oil. I used low fat cottage cheese instead of ricotta and low fat mozzarella. I only had dried basil and garlic and I didn't have the worcestshire sauce. It was soo good! I got 3 good sized servings at 2 points each. This one is a keeper!
