I couldn't bring myself to purchase one.
Since they cost $13.
And I am pretty sure I would have them eaten in less than 9.43 hours.
We had something else with our meal... which was truly the highlight of the meal.
1 1/4 cups flour
1 cup cornmeal
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 egg- lightly beaten
1/2 cup cottage cheese
2 Tablespoons honey
2 Tablespoons butter-melted
1 can (4 1/2 ounces) diced green chilies- drained (didn't have- so didn't use)
1 cup whole kernal corn (thaw first if frozen)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.
In a medium bowl, combine buttermilk, egg, cottage cheese, honey, butter, chilies, and corn. Beat with a whisk until well blended.
Add corn mixture to flour mixture and stir until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter into an 8x8 inch baking pan (I used a round pan) that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake for 35 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cut into 9 squares and serve warm.
The cottage cheese sounded a little strange. But it totally cooks out so you don't know it is there. It helps make the corn bread moist- because there isn't anything much worse than dry cornbread.
Cover with foil and bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, uncover, and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Return to oven, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Let lasagna cool for 10 minutes before slicing. (Be patient. It will hold together much better if you wait!)

I think it took me longer to type that up than it did to make it!
Changes I did or will make:
*I (nor any of my family members) don't like mushrooms. So I didn't want to put them in. But I felt like 2 cups was a significant amount of an ingredient to just leave out. We had some leftover chicken so I cut it up and added it instead.
** This was a little too much spinach. It wasn't bad- but just a lot. So unless you have a great love for spinach, I would put a little less next time.
***So I have a problem. I just skim recipes before making them. And then will realize I missed a step when it is a little too late. I didn't realize there was supposed to be cheese layered throughout until I was at the 2nd cheese layer. I decided to just put lots of cheese on top. It ended up tasty. But oh my- it would be even more tasty with cheese throughout. So ALWAYS read your recipe thoroughly before making it!
****I did not use a deep pan. And had to put a cookie sheet on the rack below to catch the drippings that were surely (and did) going to happen. It doesn't necessarily be a big pan, but just not a shallow glass one!!
