  • Brown meat in large skillet on medium-high heat. Meanwhile, mix 1 1/4 cups mozzarella, ricotta cheese, 1/4 cup Parmesan, parsley and egg until well blended; set aside.

  • Drain meat; return to skillet. Stir in spaghetti sauce. Add 1 cup water to empty sauce jar; cover with lid and shake well. Add to meat mixture; stir until well blended. Spread 1 cup meat sauce onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish; top with layers of 3 lasagna noodles, 1/3 of the ricotta cheese mixture and 1 cup meat sauce. Repeat layers twice. Top with remaining noodles, meat sauce and cheeses. Cover with greased foil.

  • Bake 1 hour or until heated through, removing foil after 45 min. Let stand 15 min. before cutting to serve.

Tips

Size-Wise: Since this comfort food classic serves 12, it's a perfect dish to serve at your next gathering.

Easy Cleanup: Spraying the foil with cooking spray before using to cover the lasagna helps prevent the foil from sticking to the cheese on top.

The lasagna was very tasty. I would have given 5 stars but the pasta was too hard when I baked it for 1 hour. I would recommend you cook the pasta halfway through in a pot and then bake the lasagna for 35 mins. Worked wonderfully when I did that. Read More

I made this last night But added 2 extra cheeses It was Amazing there is no more left family and friends enjoyed it and loved it I also Cooked My Noodles Al Dente so It wouldnt have to cook that long and I put 2 tablespoons of Basil Pesto in the Ricotta Cheese and I used preggo Sauce n added 2 tablespoons of brown sugar to it. And I didn't reheat the meat sauce when i added the spagetti sauce because it cooks again while in the oven and i put a long alumium pan of water in the oven while the lasagna cooked at the top so it wouldnt be a mess and it was so moist meaty and chessy we Loved it will be making this dish again Read More

I've made this recipe twice now. The first time I followed the recipe exactly and as many people have commented the result was dry. The second time I made the following changes and it came out perfect: -- Partially Pre-cook the lasagna noodles. (dip in boiling water for 1 minute) -- Double the sauce and only add a half of a jar of water. -- Have some extra cheese for topping the lasagna before putting it in the oven. Make sure the entire top is covered with cheese or else the noodles will be very dry. -- Add dried oregano to the Ricotta cheese mixture. Read More

This was an excellent recipe! It was fairly quick. You can use any sauce you like and it works great! I did use two jars of store-bought sauce AND added the one cup of water. I think cutting the liquid back just by 1/2 a cup would have been better but nobody complained! It depends how saucy you like your lasagna! I will never boil noodles again!!! Read More

Excellent! Lasagna doesn't get much better than this. Major compliments and 'licked clean plates' at the end of the evening meal. Definitely a keeper for my recipe box. WTG! Read More
