My Notes: I've tried this recipe. Don't skimp on the time in the oven. I tried to shorten the time and the pasta was more chewy then we like. Also, I think you can leave out the 1/4 cup water unless your sauce and ricotta are super dry. Mine was fairly wet so the lasagna turned out a little more soupy than we like. But other than that this recipe is a keeper!!
