I wish I read Donna’s review before making this. It’s definitely a lemon lasagna.
When I saw it called for the zest of a whole lemon I thought that sounded like way too much and I cut it in half. But even half was way too much lemon zest.
I think I would do a pinch of lemon zest to add some brightness. Any more than that and it completely over powers the lasagna.
I do find it funny my reaction was exactly like Donna’s and I made it for Christmas Eve similar to her. I just wish I saw her comment before I made it.
Other than that this is a super simple and easy recipe and it is a good base for a lasagna.
This lasagna was indeed very easy to make, however it should be labeled lemon lasagna. I made it for Christmas dinner, and served it with poached lobster. My husband said he had lemon meringue pie that was less lemony. My daughter didn’t eat more than a bite. I liked the fresh taste, but it didn’t taste remotely like an Italian lasagna.
