Re:Four Cheese and Tomato Lasagne

First, as simple as the tomato sauce may seem, it's truly, surprisingly, amazingly delicious! As another reviewer stated, the flavor is so wonderfully bright and fresh---my husband and I are already planning many other uses for this tomato sauce, including a zuppa di pesce. Anyway, I followed every recommendation in the recipe except for the pasta. I didn't make homemade but bought fresh noodles from a local high-end Italian pasta purveyor and they worked out great. Important to note also, no need to precook "soft" fresh pasta like this in case you're wondering---just layer the sheets on and they cook perfectly during the baking process. I ended up grating blocks of all the cheeses as instructed but wound up with excess in the end. Perhaps the fact that I used the weight measurements instead of the volumes made a difference? (I used a digital scale to weigh them).Unsure but I had extra of the mixed cheeses (mozzarella, fontina and parm-reggiano mix) after I'd finished assembling all the layers. There was still sufficient cheesiness all the same and the overall flavor was fantastic. Being a sauce person, however, i realized while assembling that the sauce wasn't quite enough so next time I'll make a double batch of the sauce, even if I don't use it all. Even still, the combination of cheeses and that fantastic sauce made for an absolutely delicious lasagna that exceeded my expectations. Try this and tweak it to your liking. Hope this helps!
