Re Lasagna, Wise geek can give you more detailed info re the noodle, dish, etc. I've been making the dish for many years, but have put my own personal twist on the dish. Prefer the cheesy meaty version.
Greek Lasagna - similar to Pastitsio, but using lasagna noodles, ground lamb and the usual suspects with bechamel sauce..
Lasagna roll-ups - many ways to go:
spinach & cheese w/ tomato/vodka sauce
asparagus wrapped in prosciutto topped w/ brown butter sauce
Roasted vegetables - use anything seasonal
Zukes & summer squash w/ bechamel
Caprese Lasagna roll-ups - using fresh sliced tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, ricotta, parm, egg, topped with marinara & cheese
Salmon, cream cheese & dill, with bechamel
Lasagna cupcakes (baked in muffin tins) - Many ways to go, from meat sauce & cheese, to artichokes & bechamel.
The "quickie" method, that's been around for awhile, is ravioli "lasagna" with layers of spinach & cheese, tomato sauce.
Mexican Lasgana - using tortillas
Asian lasagna - using won-ton wrappers/skins & a Moo Shoo filling
Deconstructed lasagna - Cooked lasagna noodles skewered with cherry tomatoes, basil & cubes of mozzarella.
