Things to keep in mind
Try to use fresh lasagna pasta sheets, which you can find in the refrigerator section of most grocery stores. You can use dried sheets if you do not find fresh sheets.
You must pre-boil the instant noodles or cooked ones in order to get the right taste. Follow the instructions given on the packet. Be sure the pasta has enough liquid to cook through, while the lasagna is baking, add about 1/2 cup of water to your sauce.

You should pre-boil or pre-cook pasta sheets before assembly. Follow the instructions provided on the packet. You can try adding a couple of tablespoons of olive oil into the water. This way, it will prevent the sheets from sticking together. After adding olive oil, stir them occasionally with a wooden spoon. Transfer cooked lasagna sheets carefully into a large bowl or pot filled with cold water to help the cooking process to stop. Leave them until they are ready to use.
After layering your lasagna, you need to make sure your last layers finish with pasta and then meat sauce. On top of the meat sauce, pour white sauce and in the end, top it with lots of mozzarella cheese. This specific order results in a golden, crunchy, and cheesy top with a layer of juicy meat sauce underneath.
