A Word about Lasagna Noodles:
"No boil" lasagna noodles are a big thing now. What I've known for YEARS is that all lasagna noodles are no boil. You never have to boil a lasagna noodle again if you don't want to.
Whole wheat lasagna noodles need to be cooked longer than regular noodles. If you're using whole wheat noodles, soak them in hot water while you prep the rest of this dish. If you're using regular noodles and you're short on time, soak the noodles in hot water. If you're making this dish and you've got 20 minutes or so to let it simmer, you don't have to prep the noodles at all.
I made this dish with whole wheat noodles. Whole wheat noodles need to cook a little longer than regular noodles. To cut down on cooking time I soaked my noodles.

Use a heavy bottom skillet for this dish. Thinner pans get hot spots and my result in burned spots.
SUPER PRO TIP:
Substitute Spinach and garlic for meat and make a vegetarian version.
