Gluten free lasagne sheets can be substituted
Low fat tasty cheese will not brown as well as regular tasty cheese
Spray underside of foil to stop it sticking to melting cheese
Ricotta cheese is cheaper bought from deli section rather than pre-packaged
Freezes very well - cut into squares,wrap in clingwrap
