  • 1/2 cup grated Romano cheese

  4. In a medium bowl stir together ricotta, grated cheese, egg, basil and garlic.
  5. Coat the bottom of a baking dish with a thin layer of spaghetti sauce. Place 3 or 4 lasagne sheets with the edges overlapping over sauce. Spread half of ricotta mixture over pasta. Cover ricotta with half of the mince, half of pepperoni slices and 1/4 of mozzarella cheese.
