Return to heat. Cook, stirring constantly, for 10 minutes or until mixture boils and thickens. Remove from heat. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in 1/4 cup cheese. Season with salt and pepper.

Drizzle with 1/3 tomato mixture, then cheese sauce. Repeat two more times. Only use half of the remaining cheese sauce on the last layer.
