Hey Carmelita! Great points and thanks for the info!
No, I haven't been cleared for meats or anything of the sorts (way too early for me!). I was just curious if anyone had added any type of meat for their version of the ricotta bake eventually down the road once they were cleared for meats. Sorry, I guess I should posted that. I totally agree with you on everything you said. I will in no way risk anything especially after getting this far. I'm not even a week post-op and right now living off of broth, water,SF popsicles, and Premier Protein shakes and to be honest it's not that bad. However, since I was meat lover and pasta lover pre op, I just fell in love with the idea that I could eventually still enjoy the inside of a lasagna and that's why I asked about the meat.
Thanks for sharing! -Larry
