I make this on a regular basis and it turns out great every time! Note: 3-1/2 cups of Pasta Sauce i= approx. 1-1/2 jars. I made the mistake of not paying attention and only purchased 1 jar the first time that I made this. Luckily, I had another jar of sauce at home.

You don't need to use no-cook lasagna. Regular works just fine.
