I never make this the same twice. This makes it interesting, my mother in law got me started cooking it and then it has sort of evolved. You really can't go wrong with it, the layers aren't set in stone so mix it up as you wish. I've never made this using a recipe so I hope that this sounds okay. When in doubt follow the directions on the noddle package.
