This is a fun and classic pie, featuring Ritz and saltine crackers and NO apples! It's perfect for the holidays.
You will never believe the complexity that the paper-thin layers paired with a savoury tomato sauce give to an otherwise "plain" lasagne recipe. Just like baklava, it gets a central thick layer too - pureed cottage cheese that's strained to almost a custard consistency. This does need to chill before baking, and you will need every bit of counter space you own, especially if you're making your own pasta. If that's not your thing though, use 1 lb fresh lasagne sheets from the grocery and roll them out with a rolling pin as thin as possible.
