I came across a recipe for chocolate pasta the other day, which got me thinking about this. Has anyone ever had a good chocolate lasagne? One where everything just "worked" and wasn't too gimmicky?
If so, where was it, and do you have any good recipes?

You know, I probably wouldn't use 2 mousses for the filling - not enough variety in the texture. Lasagna usually has some kind of chunky filling, too.
I'd go for a mascarpone filling (or a thick custard), maybe some chopped roasted fruit or a chunky berry compote. You could also sprinkle toasted nuts in between layers.
And the brûlée topping is a fab idea.
I made on a loong time ago that had a sweetened ricotta filling. There may have been some toasted nuts and fruit in the filling. I was not really impressed with it though.
