DH loves his lasagna with meat and lots of sauce. So if you like it that way this ones for you! I've made this with uncooked noodles and cooked. You pick! I find the uncooked ones a bit starchy but it's quick and easy. If using cooked noodles you can cut back on the sauce. The uncooked noodles will absorb the sauce. But be sure to let it sit for 15 minutes before cutting into it. I use a deep pan so it doesn't flow over.
