DIRECTIONS

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet, and add the chopped onion and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat until softened, then add the salt, pepper and sage. Stir in wine, allow most liquid to boil off. Stir in the undrained tomatoes and tomato paste, simmer 15 minutes until thickened.
  • Put the ricotta, 1-1/2 cups mozzarella, and grated cheese blend in a bowl. Grate in the nutmeg, and mix well with a fork.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Boil and drain noodles on kitchen towels.
  • Spread half the sauce in the bottom of a 13 x 9 x 2 baking dish, and cover with a single layer of noodles. Layer half the ricotta mixture over the noodles. Put another layer of noodles on top of the cheese filling, layer the last of the cheese, top with the last of the noodles, and then cover with remaining sauce.
  • Bake uncovered 20 minutes, spread additional mozzarella, and bake another 10 minutes, until cheese is melted. Rest 15 minutes before cutting.
  • Note: Grated cheese blend is imported parmesan/romano/asiago/fontina/provalone -- I keep 1 and 2 cup bags of grated cheese in the freezer for cooking -- salty, so adapt recipe for salt.
