  • 200g mild rich cheese (provolone, asagio, young gouda, etc.)
  • 2tsp powder douce

Boil the lasagne noodles in stock until done to your liking. Grate the cheese. Cut the butter into small bits and put them in the bottom of a 9x9" baking pan. Arrange the first layer of noodles in the bottom of the pan and sprinkle with cheese and powder douce. Continue layering until you have used all of the ingredients (end with cheese and powder douce). Bake at 150C (300F) until heated through and bubbly. Makes 9 small or 4 large serves.
