Probably 7 layers, that would be 4 layers of noodles.

I also have the question about layers. What's consider a layer? For me it is a layer of veggie/meat/cheese, or whatever else it might be, etc. Noodles are there to separate layers, but hey, I am not Italian and the only lasagna I like is the one I make. I have never liked lasagna before I started making mine and I still do not like anybody else's lasagna now.

Thanks for all the input.

I count as follows: the 1st layer is my 1st layer of lasagne sheets on top of the Ragú Bolognese, then the 2nd is the Ragù, the 3rd is another layer of Lasagne sheets, etcetra.

The 7th layer is the Bescimella ( Bechamel = white sauce ) with Pecorino Sardo ...

Thanks for all the posts.
Have a lovely evening.
Margi.
