5-cheese Lasagna

Cream Sauce:
1/4 c Butter
1/4 c Flour
2 c Milk


Cheese Filling:
1/4 c Sun-dried tomatoes -- oil packed -- minced
1 tb Fresh garlic -- minced
3 1/2 c Ricotta cheese
3 Eggs
1 c Grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 c Grated Romano cheese
1/2 ts Salt
1 ts Black pepper


Other:
4 c Mozzarella cheese -- shredded
1 c Spinach lasagna noodles or regular if unavailable
Marinara sauce -- as desired
Extra Parmesan cheese freshly grated


To make sauce melt butter with medium heat in heavy, 1 quart saucepan. Add flour and stir until well-blended; cook until frothy. Add milk, stirring constantly with wire whisk as mixture comes to a simmer. Cook and stir until thickened (3-4 minutes). Chill while mixing other ingredients. Drain and mince tomatoes and garlic. Place other cheese filling ingredients in 3-quart mixing bowl with tomatoes and garlic. Add 1-1/2 cups of cooled cream sauce and mix until well blended. Refrigerate, reserving 1/2-cup for later use. Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions. Cool under cold water and drain. Place 3 lasagna noodles in a 9x13x2 lightly oiled baking dish, overlapping slightly. Spread 1-1/2 cups cheese filling over noodles; sprinkle with one cup mozzarella and 1/4-cup fontina cheese. Repeat pasta and cheese layering three more times; top with remaining three lasagna noodles. Spread 1/2-cup of reserved cream sauce over top and cover lightly with foil. Preheat oven to 350~ and bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven and keep warm at least 30 minutes before serving. Serve topped with hot marinara and Parmesan cheese. (Can be refrigerated a day before baking if desired.)
