The jury is out on this one for me. I like Melba Toast, though I don't have any on hand currently, but I never thought of trying to assemble a lasagna using the Melba Toast as the layers usually reserved for noodles. I'm not a big fan of the flavor of rosemary anyway, and apparently that flavor of Melba Toast has been discontinued. I can't see how this wouldn't disintegrate under the application of the sauce as was vanillaorchid343's experience.

This recipe fails to be a "lasagna". I tried this out last night, followed recipe exactly and the melba toasts become non existent since they get so soggy. Your left eating a ton of sauce and ton of cheese for dinner.
