This had a wonderful flavor, but my family and I just couldn't get over the texture of the lasagna noodles. I'd use parts of this recipe again.
This is a very delightful recipe. I did not have an 11 X 7 baking dish in the house. I used my deep dish 9 1/2 X 5 and it worked fine. I just had to bake it a little longer. Soaking the pasta sheets came out fine, they felt just like fresh pasta when I removed them from the water and held up beautifully. I didn't use the pecans and I used walnuts in place of the bread crumbs. I didn't realize that the 1/3 cup of butter had to be divided until after I read it again, in my haste, I had already melted the whole 1/3 cup. But managed to just remove 2 Tablespoons of the melted butter and combine it my topping mixture. I know better and I should have read the entire directions carefully and I would have caught it. Thank you for sharing this recipe, it was a big hit during coffee break, not a nibble left!
