Ricotta and Ham Lasagna with Pesto

  • Category: Italian Inspired


  • 1 tub of Ricotta about 8oz
  • 5 tbsp Mascarpone (you mix this into the ricotta to smooth it out)
  • Fresh Pasta Sheets (if you can’t find fresh use the box, I like the flat smooth ones)
  • 4 tbsp of Pesto
  • 1 round Ham Steak cut into pieces (or you can use whatever ham you like)
  • Parmesan


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Mix the ricotta and mascarpone, season with salt and pepper to your taste.
  3. Cook the pasta sheets in boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes or 4 to 5 if you are using boxed lasagne sheets to parboil them.


  1. Smear about Tablespoon of the ricotta mixture onto the bottom of your baking dish
  2. Next add a layer of your parboiled pasta sheet, then smear on another layer of the ricotta, smear on a spoon of the pesto, then evenly distribute pieces of ham and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  3. Add another layer of pasta sheets and continue with the ricotta, pesto, ham, and parmesan.
  4. End with a layer of the pasta sheets, smear of ricotta and sprinkle of parmesan.
  5. Bake until it looks appetizing and bubbly.
