Nutritional Facts

1 individual lasagna equals 363 calories, 13 g fat (6 g saturated fat), 135 mg cholesterol, 343 mg sodium, 44 g carbohydrate, 3 g fiber, 19 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 2-1/2 starch, 2 medium-fat meat, 1 vegetable, 1/2 fat.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk the first six ingredients. On a clean work surface, mix all-purpose and semolina flours; form into a mound. Make a large well in the center. Pour egg mixture into well. Using a fork or fingers, gradually mix flour mixture into egg mixture, forming a soft dough (dough will be soft and slightly sticky).
  2. Lightly dust work surface with flour; knead dough gently five times. Divide into six portions; cover with plastic wrap. Let rest 30 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the first seven filling ingredients; stir in 1/2 cup queso fresco. Grease six individual 12-oz. au gratin dishes; place on baking sheets. Preheat oven to 350°.
  4. Fill a Dutch oven three-fourths full with salted water; bring to a boil. On a floured surface, roll each portion into a 20x4-in. rectangle, dusting dough with additional flour as needed.
  5. Add one noodle to boiling water; cook 1-2 minutes or until al dente. Place one-fifth of the noodle in bottom of a prepared dish; top with 1 tablespoon ricotta mixture and 2 tablespoons tomato. Fold noodle back to cover filling; repeat three times, topping and folding the noodle each time.
  6. Sprinkle lasagnas with remaining queso fresco and tomatoes. Bake, covered, 30-35 minutes or until heated through. If desired, sprinkle with additional herbs. Yield: 6 servings.
