Notes

This is the first time I have made Lasagna without pre-boiling the noodles. Oh my, what a life saver. I will never boil another lasagna noodle for as long as I shall live.

Anyway, I threw this together on Saturday night and let it sit in the fridge until Sunday when It came time to bake it.
