      Olive Garden Five-Cheese Lasagna

      Cream Sauce
      1/4 cup butter
      1/4 cup all-purpose flour
      2 cups milk

      Melt butter with medium heat in heavy, 1-quart saucepan. Add flour
      and stir until well-blended; cook until frothy.

      Add milk, stirring constantly with wire whisk as mixture comes to a
      simmer. Cook and stir until thickened (3-4 minutes). Chill while
      mixing other ingredients.

      Cheese Filling:
      1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes (oil packed), minced
      1 tablespoon fresh garlic, minced
      3 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
      3 eggs
      1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
      1/2 cup grated Romano cheese
      1/2 teaspoon salt
      1 teaspoon black pepper

      Drain and mince tomatoes and garlic. Place other cheese filling
      ingredients in 3-quart mixing bowl with tomatoes and garlic. Add 1
      1/2 cups cooled cream sauce and mix until well blended. Refrigerate,
      reserving 1/2 cup for later use.

      4 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
      1 cup spinach lasagna noodles or regular if unavailable
      Marinara sauce, as desired
      Extra Parmesan cheese, freshly grated

      Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions.

      Cool under cold water and drain. Place 3 lasagna noodles in a 9x13x2
      lightly oiled baking dish, overlapping slightly.

      Spread 1 1/2 cups cheese filling over noodles; sprinkle with one cup
      mozzarella and 1/4-cup fontina cheese.

      Repeat pasta and cheese layering three more times; top with remaining
      three lasagna noodles. Spread 1/2 cup of reserved cream sauce over
      top and cover lightly with foil.

      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven
      and keep warm at least 30 minutes before serving.

      Serve topped with hot marinara and Parmesan cheese. (Can be
      refrigerated a day before baking if desired.)
