ingredients

***CREAM SAUCE***
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups milk
***CHEESE FILLING***
1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, oil packed, minced
1 tablespoon fresh garlic, minced
3 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
3 eggs
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup grated Romano cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
***OTHER***
4 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 cup fontina cheese
1 cup spinach lasagna noodles or regular if unavailable
marinara sauce, as desired
extra Parmesan cheese, freshly grated

directions

To make sauce: melt butter with medium heat in heavy, 1 quart saucepan. Add flour and stir until well blended; cook until frothy. Add milk, stirring constantly with wire whisk as mixture comes to a simmer. Cook and stir until thickened (3-4 minutes). Chill while mixing other ingredients. Drain and mince tomatoes and garlic. Place other cheese filling ingredients in 3-quart mixing bowl with tomatoes and garlic. Add 1-1/2 cups of cooled cream sauce and mix until well blended. Refrigerate, reserving 1/2-cup for later use.

Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions. Cool under cold water and drain. Place 3 lasagna noodles in a 9x13x2 lightly oiled baking dish, overlapping slightly. Spread 1-1/2 cups cheese filling over noodles; sprinkle with one cup mozzarella and 1/4-cup fontina cheese. Repeat pasta and cheese layering three more times; top with remaining three lasagna noodles. Spread 1/2-cup of reserved cream sauce over top and cover lightly with foil. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven and keep warm at least 30 minutes before serving.

Very good and cheesy. I wouldn't say it serves 12 though. More like 6-8. It's filling but it's only being baked in a 9x13 pan. Of course your portion sizes may vary.

I couldn't get spinach lasanga noodles only regular so I used those. This is a great recipe and I loved the cheese filling with the sundried tomatoes.

I made this today. It was very easy to make, had no problems with it, held its form very well after cutting. My problem was the taste. Was not able to taste any of the cheeses except for the ricotta. I believe it would be better to use half of the called for ricotta and perhaps replacing that half with cheeses of your choice and I would offer a side of meat sauce to go with it as it is a little on the dry side.

This recipe was an instant hit for me and my family. My mother doesn't even make lasagna anymore! She always asks me to make this recipe for dinner or as a contribution to picnics and summer parties. This is my go-to lasagna recipe. A billion thank you's to the poster!

The BEST. My family loves it. I add turkey meat to mine and extra sauce. A small piece is very filling because of the amount of layer, so it's a great dish to make when planning on leftovers!
Can't get enough.

I made this for the wife as a suprise (showing off my culinary skills). She loved it and constantly asks that I prepare it again regularly.

One of my favorite recipes!!! I add turkey burger meat mixed with marinara sauce as a layer and it is excellent. Highly recommended!
