Layering Lasagna

In a recent post I discussed a new layering technique when making lasagna. I tried this new way of placing the noodles in the dish, as well as adding cream cheese to the list of ingredients. I was very please with the results and would like to share the recipe with you now. I love cheese so the different types and textures in this recipe are enjoyable.
