Three Layer Lasagna

Three Layer Lasagna

12 Lasagna Noodles
1 lb Ground Beef - cooked & drained
2 Jars of Sauce - Classico Four Cheese
15 oz. Ricotta Cheese
4 C Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 C Grated Parmesan Cheese
2 Eggs - lightly beaten

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain and separate. In a large saucepan, combine cooked meat and 1 1/2 jars of marinara sauce, simmer 5 minutes. In a large bowl, combine ricotta cheese, 3 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese and eggs. Spray 13″ x 9″ baking dish with cooking spray. Spread 3/4 cup marinara sauce over the bottom of the baking dish. Place 3-4 lasagna noodles over the bottom, slightly overlapping. Spread half of the cheese mixture over the noodles and cover with half of the meat sauce. Repeat layers. Cover last layer with remaining noodles and remaining marinara sauce. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese.Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

This recipe was divine. I love pasta so anything with noodles and cheese tugs at my heart. One of the best things about lasagna is it makes so many leftovers AND you can freeze the leftovers as well. Perfect for days when you do not want to cook.
