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.

I also used the rolls of goat cheese (so there was no need to drain). Otherwise, followed the recipe as given. It turned out perfectly. I was making this for a party and didn't have time to prepare the day of the party, so I prepared and baked for 15 minutes two nights before the party. Then I heated up the lasagna for about 45 minutes right before the party, and it tasted great. Rave reviews from everyone!

I made this in cannelloni form and put fresh tomatoes and basil on the top before baking too. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Next time I am going to try mixing a little pesto into the goats cheese mix.

I made this last night for my BF and a few of his friends and it got rave reviews. The goat cheese had such a wonderful taste and texture. Thank you!
