Place a layer noodles on the bottom of pan, cover with pudding, top with a layer of noodles. a la regular lasagna, but ending with pudding on top. You will have a couple noodles left over.

*You may halve the ingredients and bake for 35 minutes in an 8 by 8 inch square-baking pan

If you can find cherry pie filling made with stevia or no sugar added, that would be optimal.  Or you can microwave or boil some cherries, removing the pitts once done, and then mash with a potato masher.
