This turned out quite well and was a great change of pace from the typical leftover turkey recipes we using find. I used regular lasanga noodles (and cooked them according to the package) rather than the pre-cooked variety, although I imagine the pre-cooked noodles would work just as well. It turned out quite meaty and was very much enjoyed by all.
