Summer Lasagna with Four Cheeses
I threw this lasagna together as a way to use my fresh tomato sauce because, frankly, I ran out of jars. Using what I had on hand, I layered the sauce with the no-boil noodles, which I think make a firmer, denser, lasagna than the traditional noodles, which always seem a tad slippery and watery for some reason. But you can certainly use them here. I had some fontina, a terrific melting cheese; some leftover fresh ricotta, feta and the beautiful and oh-so-flavorful aged French Comte cheese (from a recent trip to France). The great thing about lasagna is that you can throw what seem like disparate cheeses into it for a brand new flavor.
- 8 cups fresh tomato sauce
- 1 12-ounce package no-cook lasagna noodles (about 12 noodles)
- 12 ounces fresh ricotta or whole-milk ricotta
- 4 ounces feta cheese
- 4 ounces fontina cheese
- 4 ounces Comte or Gruyere cheese
- 2 ounces Romano cheese
- Fresh basil
Spread a cup of sauce in the bottom of a 9×13-inch pan.Top with 4 uncooked lasagna noodles.Top with ricotta, feta, half of the fontina cheese, 2 cups sauce and basil. Repeat with noodles, fontina cheese and sauce. Top with noodles, sauce and Comte and Romano cheeses.
