  • Add the garlic and cook for about a minute, then add the oregano, basil, chilli flakes, tomato sauce and tomato paste. Cook just until the sauce is heated through.
  • Set oven to 350 degrees and begin assembling the lasagna
  • Spread a thin layer of sauce over the bottom of the pan, then add a layer of noodles.
  • Spread 2/3 of the remaining sauce over the noodles, then add a second layer of noodles.
  • Next spread the ricotta mixture evenly over the lasagna then add the third layer of noodles.
  • Spread the remaining sauce over the noodles, then add the shredded cheese.
  • Cover with aluminium foil and bake for approximately 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes you should see the sauce bubbling when you remove the foil. If not, return to the oven until it does. Then remove the foil, turn the oven to broil, and broil for about 5 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.
