Cheryl: I am not sure about the sodium of the clam juice. That could be a job for google. Gabby: we got the pasta from and free shipping because we usually hand them half our pay check when we place orders. :)

My stores won't carry the lasagna noodles by Dreamfields. I don't want to buy it off the website as the box ends up costing me nearly $5 with shipping. Sorry, I forgot you are the gourdaphobic...LOL At least I didn't suggest adding frog legs to the mix. =0)

Update: we used the Dreamfields lasagna noodles. (Gabby: you know I have gourdaphobia so zucchini is out of the question for me)

This does sound yummy. You know if you use dehydrated zucchini strips for your noodles you can eliminate a lot of the carbs. Use dry ones so they don't add more water to the dish.
