  1. Heat the sauce in a saucepan until simmering on medium to low heat.
  2. Meanwhile, mix up the cheese filling: the ricotta, Locatelli Romano, mozzarella, garlic, basil paste, parsley, torn basil leaves, and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Next, ladle sauce to coat the bottom of the lasagna dish. Top the sauce with a layer of fresh pasta noodles, then cheese mixture, sprinkle on some mozzarella and Locatelli on top of the cheese mixture. Then top with sauce.
  4. Repeat the process, noodles, cheese mixture, cheeses, sauce.
  5. When you get to the last noodle layer, top with sauce, some mozzarella, and some Locatelli cheese.
  6. Cover loosely with foil, place the lasagna on a sheet tray in case of any boil over, and bake at 350° for one hour. Once out of the oven, let the lasagna rest for 20 to 30 minutes before cutting. Garnish with fresh torn parsley and basil.
