Sounds interesting, right? Apple Lasagna.
I was given this recipe by a coworker of mine. She wanted me to experiment with it before she tried it for herself. I thought because the title called it lasagna that it would be more of a main dish, but the recipe lists it as a dessert. Here goes!
- 12 lasagna noodles
- 2 (21 ounce) cans apple pie filling
- 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese
- 1 cup Ricotta cheese
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 6 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 3 tbsp butter
- 6 tbsp brown sugar
- 1/4 cup quick oats
- Dash of ground nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large pot of boiling water, cook noodles to desired doneness. I prefer mine to be just a tiny bit crunchy. Drain noodles and set aside.
Coat a 9-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Layer 4 noodles on bottom of prepared dish. Spread 1 can of apple pie filling on top, slicing any extra-thick apples. Layer 4 noodles over the layer of apples.
In a large bowl, mix together the Cheddar cheese, Ricotta cheese, egg, and granulated sugar; spread them evenly over the noodles and top with the remaining 4 noodles. Spoon remaining can of apple pie filling over noodles.
In a small bowl, crumble together the flour, cinnamon, butter, brown sugar and quick oats. Sprinkle over the apple filling.
Bake for 45 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes then slice and serve either warm or cold.
