*You will need…
-9 standard, long whole wheat lasagna noodles
*For Corn Mixture:
-15 ounce container of ricotta
-1/2 cup milk or cream
-14-15 ounce can of creamed corn
-the kernels scraped from 2 ears of fresh corn
-handful of fresh basil leaves
-1/2 handful fresh sage leaves
-1/4-1/2 tsp of salt (start with 1/4 tsp and taste. add more if needed)
-freshly cracked black pepper to taste
-freshly grated nutmeg
*Extra cheese needed or layering:
-1 1/2 cups grated asiago cheese
-2 cups provolone cheese
*Mix all the corn mixture ingredients in a large bowl until all is combined.
In a 13*9 inch greased baking dish, spoon a light layer of the corn mixture and spread evenly. Lay down a layer of cooked lasagna noodles*. Add another layer of the corn mixture and sprinkle with a layer of grated asiago cheese. Repeat until you have 3 layers, ending with the asiago. Finish with 2 cups of grated Provolone cheese. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.(*note- I recommend reserving a cup of the pasta water in case your lasagna comes out a bit dry. For a quick fix, just pour a little pasta water around the edges of the cooked lasagna and allow to sit for a few minutes before serving.

This looks divine! I am totally obsessed with corn right now. Thanks for sharing. You're always inspiring.
Your lasagna recipe looks fantastic! I love the picture of your little kitchen helper. He is too cute! Great tip about reserving the pasta liquid.
Sebia-Thank you so much! I love corn too, and buy so much of it in the summer when it's so cheap.
Linda-My little helper is my 2 yr old son and he loves to cook with me! It really helps him appreciate the food he's been served. Thanks for reading!
I, too, love the look of this. I hardly ever make lasagna, but I have a feeling this version is in my kitchen's future.
Your lasagna looks great! We love fresh corn and this sounds like a perfect recipe for it! Your little guy is a doll and it looks like he is a big help!
Tinky-I make lasagna fairly often..I used to think it was such a difficult thing to prepare, but it's kinda fun..especially when you have a great little helper!
Linda-there is nothing like fresh corn, although I always have canned and frozen corn on hand because I love it so much.
