First layer is sauce with crushed, already cooked meatballs,
grated cheese, s & p,
then a layer of noodles long ways,
then a layer of doppled ricotta spread out and sprinkled with grated mozz,
then a layer of lasagna noodles placed short ways,
then a layer of sauce, meatballs, grated cheese,
then noodles long-ways,
then layer of ricotta and mozz,
followed by a short side layer of noodles,
topped with a final layer of no ricotta, just some sauce, crushed meatballs, grated cheese and topped with mozz.
So I guess it's meat, noodles, cheese, noodles, meat, noodles, cheese, noodles, then final top layer.
This is how my nonna and mother did it. If I had to cut it down it would have to be in a shorter width dish. But to cut down on a layer, I don't know which one I could cut out and have it be just as good.
