- 1 lb fresh mozzarella (also known as fior di latte) cut into 1/2 inch cubes.
- 3 cups parmigiano reggiano fresh grated
Assemble the lasagna
Spread 1/5 of the ragu in the bottom of the lasagna dish.
Cover the ragu with noodles.
Add the next 1/5 of the ragu onto the noodles.
Top the ragu with 1/3 of the fresh mozzarella and 1/4 of the parmigiano.
Layer the next row of lasagna noodles on top.
Repeat this whole process (1/5 of the ragu then the cheese and noodles) twice more for a total of 4 layers.
Spoon the remaining ragu over the top layer of noodles.
Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 of the parmigiana to cover.
Cook the lasagna
Cover the lasagna with aluminum foil.
Bake in your pre-heated oven for 30-40 minutes (you remembered to pre-heat your oven, right?).
Remove the aluminum foil.
Bake, uncovered, for an additional 10 or 15 minutes.
Remove the lasagna and let rest 15 minutes. Serve.
