Five-Cheese Lasagna in the Little Nesco

We tried this tonight and it was very good. It's a variation on a recipe from the MomsMenu forums. This recipe is designed for a 4-qt. Nesco roaster but if you don't have one of those, just use a 9X13 pan (you might need a few more lasagna noodles in that case, though!)

5-Cheese Lasagna

12 lasagna noodles
8 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
8 oz Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
8 oz mozzarella-provolone blend, shredded
1/3 cup grated Romano cheese
1/4 tsp oregano
3 cups your favorite spaghetti sauce (I used a batch of marinara)

Mix the Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese together.
Spread a little sauce on the bottom of the cookwell. Top with 3 lasagna noodles.
Add half the Cheddar-Jack mix, sprinkle with oregano, then top with sauce.
Make another layer of noodles, the rest of the Cheddar-Jack, and more sauce.
Make a third layer of noodles and top with the mozzarella-provolone mix. Add more sauce and top with the last noodles. Top the whole thing with sauce and sprinkle with Romano cheese.
Cover the cookwell and bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

(If you're using a 9X13, the original recipe says to bake uncovered. I haven't tried it this way.)
