Tips: This was a fun easy way to enjoy "lasagna" without all the fuss. As you break up the noodles, start about 2 inches down from the top. The noodles will break into all different size pieces as you go. If you keep string cheese on hand, you can substitute 2 pieces of string cheese for the shredded Mozzarella cheese. Just make the strings nice and thin. I also shared this recipe at Diary of a Stay-at-Home Mom's Cooking Thursday.
