Notes

Baking the meat into thin meatloaf pieces is what holds the lasagna together. The meat should be pressed into a rimmed baking sheet to be as thin as possible.
To prevent over browning the cheese, cover the casserole pan with foil while baking. Then remove the foil during the last ten minutes of baking to brown the cheese.
