Don't know if this will make it to the list or not, but here goes:
8 oz lasagna noodles, precooked until al dente (OR "no bake noodles
soaked in hot water for a few minutes until pliable)
4 baking apples, cored, peeled and sliced thinly
cinnamon (1 tsp or so, depending on your taste)
1/2 cup brown sugar plus some for "sprinkling"
2 cups ff ricotta or cottage cheese
8 oz shredded ff cheddar cheese
1 egg white (can be omitted if desired)
1 cup good apple cider
Place 1/3 of the apples in the bottom of a deep square baking dish
(glass). Sprinkle with some cinnamon and brown sugar. Place 1/3 of
the pre-cooked noodles on top.
Mix the cheeses and egg white with the 1/2 cup brown sugar and some
cinnamon and nutmeg. Spread 1/2 on top of the noodles, then top with
more apples and another layer of noodles.
Repeat apple/cheese/noodles until you use them all up. Top layer
should be noodles with a few apple slices for garnish. Sprinkle with
some cinnamon. Pour apple cider over lasagna.
Cover with wax paper or plastic wrap and microwave on HIGH for 10-15
minutes or until noodles are tender. Allow to sit to absorb moisture.
ALternately, I guess this can be baked in the oven (350 for 1/2 hour
or so, covered with foil).
I am serving this at a "stitchathon" this weekend. It is reminiscent
of apple crepes or blintzes. Cortland apples were perfect in this
recipe. The recipe was lifted from a recipes bulleting board a few
months ago, but I revised it radically. Originally called for canned
apple goop (ick) and an oatmeal/sugar/butter topping.
