This recipe is adapted from one I saw on a package of Rosetto frozen cheese ravioli noodles. I thought it was a genius idea, using noodles with ricotta cheese already inside to make lasagna. I made it my own by using my own sauce, and have never made lasagna any other way since. If this sauce isn't your thing, use your own. It's not a quick recipe, but it is pretty easy to make.
