  4. Add 3/4 of the tomato sauce, spices, salt and pepper and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. At the end of cooking, add the ricotta and mix well.
  5. In a dish a gratin (or like me 2 smaller dishes) pour a little tomato sauce at the bottom and then assemble the lasagne: lasagne sheet then stuff ricotta / zucchini then lasagne sheet then stuffing and finally lasagne sheet then a layer of tomato sauce and finally a little grated cheese.
