Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 pound dried or Fresh Lasagna Sheets

  • 4 cups grated pecorino cheese
  • 2 cups fresh basil
  • 2 cups dried breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  2. Butter a 9-by-13-inch baking dish and place a single layer of lasagna sheets in the dish. Pour 2 cups bechamel evenly over pasta; top with 2 cups of the roasted tomatoes in their juices, one third of the ricotta, 1 cup pecorino, and one third of the basil. Repeat process twice and top with remaining lasagna sheets. Top with remaining 2 cups bechamel and 1 cup pecorino.

Remove from oven and let stand 30 to 45 minutes before slicing and serving.
