Easy Lasagna

lasagna

Are you intimidated by lasagna? You don’t have to be. It’s not as hard as it may seem.

Buy these ingredients:

1 pound of ground Italian sausage

1 small container ricotta cheese

1 2-cup bag of mozzarella cheese

1 cup real parmesan cheese

1 can crushed tomatoes

1 small can tomato paste

1 12-oz can of tomato sauce

1 box lasagna noodles

1 onion, chopped

1 tbsp. minced garlic

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. pepper

1/3 c. Italian seasoning

1 tsp. parsley

1 egg

Preheat oven to 375.

Fill a large pot with water. Set it to boil. In another pan, brown the sausage, onion and garlic together. When done, add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Bring to a boil, then cover the pan and simmer while the noodles are cooking.

When the noodles are barely soft (they can be firmer than you think), rinse them with cold water.

Reserve 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese.

In a bowl, mix the ricotta cheese, the rest of the mozzarella cheese, egg, parsley, and a pinch of salt and pepper. The mixture will be thick.

Spray a rectangular pan with nonstick spray. Line the bottom of the pan with noodles. Next, put a layer of sauce. Top with a layer of ricotta cheese mixture. Continue this process until ingredients are used.

Top with reserved mozzarella cheese.  Cover with aluminum foil, and bake for 45-60 minutes, until the sauce is bubbly.
