Ingredients

12 Regular lasagna noodles or whole wheat
3 cups (750 mL) Whipping cream 35%
1 cup (250 mL) Grated Parmesan cheese (reduced fat)
2 tsp (10 mL) Lime zest
2 cans (142 g each) CLOVER LEAF® Flaked Light Tuna - Spicy Thai Chili
1 ¼ cups (300 mL) Sharp cheddar cheese, grated (reduced fat)
1 Large tomato, diced
2 tsp (10 mL) Chopped basil
Salt and pepper to taste

PREP INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C).
  2. In a saucepan, mix cream, Parmesan cheese, lime zest (if desired), salt and pepper.  Cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until bubbles form on the wall of the pan and the sauce is slightly thickened.
  3. Spread about ½ cup (125 mL) of sauce onto a plate of 13 x 9 inches (3 liters).  Cover with 3 lasagna noodles. With a spoon, spread a quarter of the remaining sauce over pasta and spread a third of the tuna.
  4. Repeat twice and end with the last three noodles.  Sprinkle with cheddar, add tomatoes, pour the remaining sauce on top and sprinkle with basil.  Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes.
  5. Remove the foil and place under the grill 3 to 4 minutes to brown the surface.  Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
