Goat Cheese Lasagna

Print PrintShare with Friends

Prep:

Necessity is the mother of . . . well, you know. This recipe was born when I went to the grocery store one day and they were out of ricotta. It occurred to me that goat cheese being the same consistency, it might do in a pinch. I find it lends itself beautifully to this dish, and now my family prefers this recipe to the traditional. Use the un-aged soft goat cheese, for example Chavroux. If you are looking for a marinara sauce recipe, I've posted one that goes especially well with this dish ! Preparation time does not include time to prepare the marinara sauce.
