3. Cook the lasagne sheets in boiling salted water until al dente. Drain the lasagne and, once the sheets are cool enough to handle, cut each one in half.

4. Stack the lasagne sheets on top of one other, placing a spoonful of the ricotta mixture between each one. Spoon the lemon butter on top and garnish with fresh basil and extra prosciutto if desired.
