Broccoli & 3-Cheese Lasagna

I am SO enjoying my time at home and am trying to make the best of some spare minutes to try cooking. Now, if you know me well you know that I don't know anything about cooking but... I'm trying and having fun with it too! Here's to hoping to find more meals that are yummy and that i like!

We had this yummy lasagna the other night for dinner and thought I would share! It's a little heavy/rich so plan on one good sized piece instead of two like me (I ended up with a tummy ache).

15 oz. ricotta
1#frozen broccoli florets - thawed, patted dry & chopped
2 1/4 cups grated mozzarella
1/2 cup grated parmesan
Salt & Pepper
16 oz. marinara sauce
1/2 cup heavy cream
8 no-boil lasagna noodles

*Preheat oven to 400 degrees
*In a large bowl combine the ricotta, broccoli, 2 cups of the mozzarella, 1/4 cup of parmesan, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. In a small bowl, combine marinara and cream.
*Spoon in a then layer of the sauce into the bottom of an 8-inch square baking dish. Top with 2 noodles, a quarter of the remaining sauce, and a third of the broccoli mixture; repeat twice. Top with the remaining 2 noodles and sauce. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup of mozarella and 1/4 cup of parmesan.
*Cover tightly with an oiled piece of foil and bake until the noddles are tender, 35-40 min. *Uncover and bake until the top is golden brown, 10-15 min
