      This was one of the most distinguished and satisfying lasagnas I have had. The variety of cheeses combined with a stove-top cream come together in a flavorful burst of palate-pleasing surprises! The actual prep time and cook time of this recipe was far easier than I had expected and the ingredients should all be readily available anywhere. I chose to omit the marina sauce and just go for a cheese lasagna with only the sun dried tomatos. However, a few of my guests adore marina, so all I did was serve a side bowl of marina sauce with the lasagna and those who desired the marina could simply drizzle their servings. A wonderful recipe. Thanks so much!

      A marvelous dish with excellent flavour. I took heed of the fact many commented on the lack of white sauce and doubled the recipe. I had just enough. This will become a special treat in my house. I found another recipe site with this recipe and found that the recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups of fontina to be devided evenly and spread between the layers of the lasagna with mozzarella. http://www.grouprecipes.com/35633/olive-garden-5-cheese-lasagna.html. I only gave it 4 instead of 5 stars because in my heart healthy home this recipe is going to be a once in a while dish.

      Very good. Kids gobbled it up, too! NOTE THAT THE FONTINA CHEESE ISN'T IN THE INGREDIENT LIST. It was delicious even without! :) Thanks for sharing!
