Please make sure you cover all of the pasta with the sauce...otherwise the pasta parts left open will be dry and crunchy, possibly burnt. The end picture confused me. It cannot be a finished dish. A lasagna in the over for 30 minutes will be hot and bubbly, the sauce covering all the noodles, the cheese a melted sheet of goo covering the top, with brown parts. Also, you may need to cover the dish with aluminum foil for part of the cooking to keep it from burning, depending. As an American, this dish is especially loved when lots of garlic is added. I love the eggplant/mushroom variation and am planning to use it this Saturday. Thank you for all the wonderful meal ideas!

Hi Jessie, Thanks for the tips. This picture was taken long back when I started the website. My cooking, photography and writing skills were amateurish then. I will soon try to update a better picture.

This is a very helpful page. Lots of great recipes. But this one is missing something: lasagna is layers of pasta and toppings not just one.

Put pasta on the bottom, then place mushrooms on top, pour a little bit of sauce, then pasta again, then eggplant, some sauce, some cheese, pasta again, mushrooms (or any topping), some sauce, some cheese, pasta, eggplant, pasta and finally cover with cheese. It is a very rich dish.

With pasta, be careful not to overcook it. It tastes terrible when overcooked. Italians say pasta has to be cooked "al dente", which means hard to the tooth. For lasagna that is especially important because it goes to cook more in the oven.
