This recipe uses matzah sheets instead of lasagna noodles. Delicious, and it's easy to take the leftovers for lunch the next day (unlike dry matzah for sandwiches!) As an option, add cooked spinach, mushrooms, onions, or peppers.

  • Break matzo sheets in half and run under warm water to soften. Pour tomato sauce into bowl, and season with salt and pepper. Coat the bottom of the prepared pan with some of the tomato sauce, then begin layering with the softened matzo sheet, Swiss cheese, mozzarella cheese, and tomato sauce. Continue layering until the cheeses are used up, finishing with a layer of matzo. Top with the remaining tomato sauce, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and oregano.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is melted, 25 to 30 minutes.

Very tasteful. I've put lots of tomato sauce and use the cheese I've found regularly here in Argentina and it turn out delicious! Thanks! Read More

Made this using homemade marinara sauce (a tomato sauce with seasonings and red wine) and ricotta instead of the Swiss cheese. I cooked the lasagne covered removing the foil during the last ten minutes of cooking and then browning the top under the broiler in order to develop a few crispy bits for texture contrast. Flavour was bland and the matzoh mushy although an acceptable lasagna substitute for use during Passover. When I it make again I want to try including caramellized onion for a richer flavour and mushrooms to give one's teeth something to bite into. Garlic and a layer of fresh leaf basil wouldn't hurt either. I'd also consider adding pine nuts for texture. I think this recipe has potential but needs further refinement in order to make it something really special. Read More

I made it like regular lasagna. I skipped the swiss and used ricotta egg and parsley. Then mozzarella and barilla tomato sauce. I added sauted mushrooms and spinach. Everyone had seconds and asked for the leftovers. Read More
