Successful pasta is easy with a few pasta pointers:
-Be sure to cook pasta in rapidly boiling water. This prevents the pasta from sticking together.
-Don't over cook pasta. Check the pasta a few minutes before the recommended doneness time. It should be "al dente" or tender, but still firm.

Are the directions correct? Should it be stack "zucchini" slices instead of "cheese" slices??
The directions are correct. The cheese slices need to be but into thin strips and stacking them is a good way to do this so you can cut several strips at a time.
Easy to make and very tasty. I substituted lasagne noodles with mini farfalle and used sweet sausage patties, browned, and crumbled.
