Dessert Lasagne
Serves 8

12 pieces lasagne
4 cups ricotta cheese
1 cup sugar, divided
8 kiwifruit, peeled
4 cups strawberries, washed and trimmed, 8 reserved for garnishing
4 cups blackberries, washed
1/2 cup toasted, sliced almonds
Mint sprigs, to garnish

Cook the pasta according to package directions. Rinse, drain and
set aside.

In a medium bowl, stir together the ricotta cheese and 1/2 cup
sugar. Set aside.

In the food processor, puree 4 kiwifruit with 2 tablespoons sugar.
Transfer the puree to a bowl and set it aside. Rinse the processor
bowl.

In the processor, puree half the strawberries with 2 tablespoons
sugar. Strain the puree into a bowl and set it aside. Rinse the
processor bowl.

In the processor, puree half the blackberries with 2 tablespoons
sugar. Strain the puree and set it aside.

Slice the kiwifruit into 1/4-inch thick rounds. Slice the strawberries
into 1/8-inch thick pieces. Slice the blackberries in half.

Reserve 1/4 cup of each of the purees to use as a garnish when

To assemble the lasagne, first cover the bottom of a 9-inch-by-13-inch
glass baking pan with 3 pieces of pasta. Spoon 1/3 of the ricotta
on top and spread it evenly. Pour the kiwifruit puree over the
cheese and arrange the kiwifruit slices on the puree. Lay on 3 more
pieces of pasta and cover with 1/2 the remaining cheese. Pour the
strawberry puree over the cheese and sprinkle with sliced strawberries.

Just before serving, sprinkle the lasagne with the remaining 2
tablespoons sugar and with the toasted almonds. Cut into 8 rectangles
and use a spatula to set the pieces on dessert plates. Decorate
the plates with dots of reserved purees. Garnish each piece of
lasagne with a strawberry and a sprig of mint.
