Layering the Lasagna: and obviously, the last piece of the dish is layering the lasagna and preparing it. There are 3 layers of noodles, 2 layers of veggies, 3 layers of cheddar, and 3 layers of sauce (I skirt the pureed tomatoes in the center layer).
I have utilized no-bubble lasagna noodles here, if you utilize ordinary lasagna noodles you should bubble them first.
For the cheddar, I have utilized ground mozzarella cheddar. You can utilize a cheddar of decision and utilize less or more according to your inclination.
The skillet that I have utilized here is a preparing dish estimating roughly 11 x 8 inches. You can utilize a square dish or a greater dish as well. I needed to snap off a portion of the noodles with the goal for them to find a way into the dish.
