I have to be honest and admit that I have attempted to make this several times and did not have success, and when I started to write this recipe post, I started to include all the mistakes I made each time, because they were different mistakes every time.  However, half way through that novella, I decided it was too much info, and I would just give the recipe that finally worked for me, and the recipe that I will make again.  It was really delicious and truth be told my Lasagna from scratch eating family did not miss the lasagna pasta noodles they were accustomed to at all!
