Do you use ricotta cheese in your lasagna recipe?

I prefer ricotta for lasagna, for flavor and texture.

I prefer the ricotta too; have you ever made lasagna in little rolls, instead of layers?

I think I did roll them that way once -- too much trouble.
I've made it by precooking the noodles and using the
non-precook ones, and I have to say, less trouble is a
good thing.

If I'm using eggplant, I like to steam the slices and
use them instead of the noodles.

I've never used the "non-precook" noodles; I've been cooking lasagna without cooking the noodles for 36 years, just using plain old dry noodles!

I don't like cottage cheese in mine either. I think that ricotta has a creamy or kind of a sinful flavor to a lot of things....lol
