In a pot of boiling water, cook each noodle just until it bends. Then, flatten it before layering it in the baking dish.
Layer noodles in alternating directions. The first layer goes lengthways, the second layer goes crossways.

After the first layer of noodles, add 1/2 of the meat sauce, then, 1/2 of the cheese sauce.
After the second layer, add the other 1/2 of the meat sauce & the other 1/2 of the cheese sauce.
On the top layer of noodles, add the reserved meat sauce(this will be a thin layer) & the 16 oz. of mozzarella cheese.

Bake uncovered in a 350 degree oven until golden brown around the edges. About 30 minutes. Then cover with foil to keep it from browning too dark on top. Cook for another 15 minutes.

After removing from the oven, let it stand for 20 minutes to settle before cutting.
