    1. I’m sorry, I made a change but didn’t catch all of the places where it said uncooked. The noodles should be cooked al dente as stated.

  1. Yikes! Today is my first attempt. Yesterday was a shopping marathon to prepare. I made this dish today and had not seen this version. I froze all of mine with uncooked pasta. I wonder what will happen? A crunchy surprise? I do appreciate all of your work. Not a complaint here, just a warning to self to check and compare all versions before I begin.

    1. Did you print out the “printable recipe cards” before starting? And I am sure that the noodles will likely be fine as they will most likely absorb liquid when thawing and cooking.

  2. Tricia, I did use the printable recipe card. Just rechecked and it still instructs to use uncooked lasagna. I agree, they will probable turn out fine.

  3. Just a friendly not to let your viewers know if you have not had eggplant in this kind of dish or maybe you never have I would not suggest adding it. The receipt itself is wonderful minus eggplant.

  4. I’m a newby, what do the numbers at the end of individual instructions mean? Ex: sprinkle with cheese and basil. #2

    1. Hey, there! It means you need two different amounts of basil. For example, 1/2 cup and 1/4 cup – so we label them #1 and #2 so you use the correct amount as you follow the recipe. Hope that helps!
