Ingredients

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest, plus 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 8 square fresh lasagna noodles (each about 5 inches)
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 12 ounces edible weeds, thick stems removed and large leaves roughly chopped (about 9 ounces trimmed)
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil; add 1 tablespoon oil. In a medium bowl, stir together ricotta, tarragon, and lemon zest; season with salt and pepper.

  2. Step 2

    A few at a time, cook lasagna noodles until al dente. Using tongs, transfer to a baking sheet, laying each square flat. Cover with plastic wrap. Empty water and reserve pot.

  3. Step 3

    In pasta pot, heat remaining oil over medium-high. Add garlic and cook until tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Add weeds; season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing, until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in raisins and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper.

  4. Step 4

    On each of four serving plates, top one lasagna noodle with about 1/4 cup weed mixture and 2 tablespoons ricotta mixture. Top with another noodle, 1/4 cup weeds, and 2 tablespoons ricotta. Drizzle with oil, if desired, and serve immediately.
