How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat oven to 375°. Lightly coat a 2-quart baking dish with olive oil and set aside.

Step 2    

Cook lasagna noodles until al dente according to package instructions. Rinse under cold water until cool. Lay the cooked pasta flat and set aside.

Step 3    

In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, egg, Parmigiano-Reggiano, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Set aside.

Step 4    

Spread a light layer of tomato sauce on the bottom of the baking dish. Lay 3 to 4 lasagna noodles lengthwise over the sauce.

Step 5    

Layer one-third of the remaining tomato sauce over the lasagna noodles. Layer half of the ricotta cheese over the sauce and then spread one-third of the mozzarella cheese. Repeat this pattern: noodles, sauce, ricotta cheese and mozzarella cheese. Add a final layer of lasagna noodles, then add remaining tomato sauce and remaining mozzarella cheese.

Step 6    

Bake lasagna for about 45 minutes or until the top cheese is melted and golden.

Step 7    

Remove from oven; let cool for about 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
