When I first saw this idea for "Summer Lasagne" on Framed, I knew I would try it the instant my garden produced enough tomatoes. It soon did, and I did, and I'm so glad! This twist on lasagna is perfect for summer. It's fresh, cool, tasty, and makes use of summer's bounty.
In the original post, Kate made her own ricotta. My first reaction was
What? You can make ricotta??But I don't really like ricotta.Hmm....well...I've never liked store-bought ricotta...
So I tried it. And it worked! I actually made my own ricotta.
It was simple and it was good.
So you layer the noodles and fresh ricotta and sauteed zucchini and tomatoes and basil, and there you are.
No oven. Just perfect.
Try it before summer is gone for good.
