"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Lasagne con Pomodoro e Mozzarella
Tomato and Mozzarella Lasagne
(Lasagne con Pomodoro e Mozzarella)

For the Sauce:
3 onions, chopped
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
6 garlic cloves, minced
3 (28 to 32-oz) cans crushed tomatoes in thick puree
1 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup fresh orange juice

For the Lasagne:
18 (7 x 3 and 1/2-inch sheets) dry no-boil lasagne (1 lb)
2 and 1/2 lb fresh mozzarella (smoked or plain), chilled and coarsely grated (6 cups)
1 cup freshly grated Parmigiano cheese 
Prepare the Sauce:
Cook onions in butter and olive oil with oregano, thyme, and salt and pepper to taste in a 4-quart saucepan over moderate heat, stirring, until onions are softened.

Add garlic and cook, stirring, 1 minute.

Add tomatoes and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 18 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in parsley, orange juice, and salt and pepper to taste.

Preheat oven to 375F. and butter 2 (13 by 9-inch) baking dishes.

Prepare the Lasagne:
Soak lasagne sheets in hot water to cover by 1 inch until softened and flexible, about 20 minutes.

Spread 1 and 1/2 cups sauce in each baking dish and top sauce in each dish with 3 drained pasta sheets, overlapping if necessary.

Sprinkle 1 cup mozzarella and 1/4 cup parmesan cheese evenly in each dish.

Top with 3 drained pasta sheets per dish, overlapping if necessary.

Repeat layering with 1 cup mozzarella, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, 1 and 1/2 cups sauce, and 3 drained pasta sheets in each dish.

Finish assembling lasagne by topping each with 1 and 1/2 cups sauce. (You will have leftover sauce and mozzarella.)

Bake lasagne, covered with foil, in middle of oven 30 minutes.

Remove foil and sprinkle evenly with remaining 2 cups mozzarella cheese.
Bake until bubbling and cheese is melted, about 10 minutes more.

Serve lasagne with some of remaining sauce, reheated.
