  • To Taste Italian Seasoning
  • To Taste Garlic Powder
  • To Taste Pepper
  • 1 Egg
  • 15 oz Ricotta Cheese
  • 1 cup Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 cup Parmesan Cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375
  • Cook lasagna noodles as directed on package. I like mine al dente since they will cook a touch more while baking. 
  • Brown Italian Sausage about 8 minutes.
  • Add: Garlic cloves, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and pepper. 
  • Add sauce leaving a small portion in the jar for the first layer. 
  • While saut√©ing meat, sauce and spices, add egg and Ricotta cheese to a bowl mixing well. 
  • Also blend Mozzarella and Parmesan in a separate bowl. 
  • Remove meat sauce from skillet and put in a separate bowl. 
  • Now time to layer...
    First layer will be the reserved sauce from the jar.
  • Add a layer of noodles, I used 4 noodles per layer.
  • Add a layer of Ricotta cheese,
  • Add a layer of Cheese blend, 
  • Add a layer of sauce then repeat..
  • Noodles, Ricotta, Cheese blend and sauce.
  • Top the last layer with Noodles, Sauce and Cheese blend.
  • My lasagna was two layers tall (12 noodles) and the noodles spilled over the edge. I carefully cut the layers to height of my skillet. 
  • Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes. 
  • After 25 minutes remove foil and bake an additional 10 minutes. 
  • I like my cheese a bit toasted to I broiled on low for about 3 minutes. 

Notes

I would add tomato paste to increase my sauce next time. You can also add veggies and ground beef to mix it up.
