Lasagna cheese?

Someone Italian please help me out here!

I was Italy last month and had a taste of what I now know to be true lasagna. In place of the usual ricotta was a kind of cheese that had a soft, light, creamy consistency. I'd been told that it might have been provola, but when I went to my local Italian market today the lady behind the counter gave me a puzzled look. Other than ricotta, the only other cheeses used are mozzarella and parmesan. So I took her advice and stuffed my lasagna generously with mozzarella. It turned out okay....but just like a cheese pizza it got me using my jaw much more than I hoped. Now I'm really starting to miss Italy. What was that mysterous cheese which practically melted in my mouth?
