A slightly different take on two favorite comfort foods: grilled cheese sandwich and lasagna.

What You Need

  • Your favourite pasta sauce
  • 1/3 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded mozzarella cheese
  • A few tablespoons butter, softened
  • Good crusty bread, sliced
  • A zest of lemon rind (optional)

How To Make It

  1. In a small bowl stir together ricotta, basil, and a good pinch of salt and pepper.
  2. Add a pinch of lemon zest if you have it on hand.
  3. Place a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  4. Butter one side of four slices of bread.
  5. With the butter sides down, divide the mozzarella cheese between the four slices.
  6. Spread two of the slices with ricotta cheese.
  7. Top the ricotta with a few spoonfuls of pasta sauce.
  8. Top with the other piece of bread.
  9. Grill the two sandwiches until golden brown and crisp on the outside, and melty on the inside.
  10. Remove from the skillet and allow to rest for just a few minutes before slicing in half and enjoying warm.
