  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Bake 1 hour or until heated through, removing foil after 45 min. Let stand 15 min. before cutting to serve.

Footnotes

  • 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.

I thought this was very dry, maybe I just over cooked it.
