Classic Lasagna

Instructions

Step 1
Stir the ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and eggs in a medium bowl and set it aside. Season the beef as desired. In a 3-quart saucepan over medium- high heat, cook the beef until it's well browned, stirring often to break up the meat. Pour off any fat. Stir the sauce in the saucepan.
Step 2
Spoon 2 cups beef mixture into a 13x9x2-inch baking dish. Top with 4 lasagna noodles, half the ricotta cheese mixture and half the mozzarella. Repeat the layers. Top with the remaining 4 lasagna noodles, remaining beef mixture and the remaining Parmesan cheese.
Step 3
Bake at 400°F. for 30 minutes or until the lasagna is hot. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
Step 4
You can also follow this recipe to make 2 smaller lasagnas instead of 1 large. Use two 11x8x2-inch baking dishes and divide the beef mixture, noodles, cheese mixture and cheese between them. Enjoy one right away and freeze the other for later.
Step 5
To simplify the prep, you can use uncooked lasagna noodles in this recipe. Heat the oven to 350°F. Assemble the lasagna as directed, then cover the baking dish. Bake for 45 minutes. Uncover, then bake for 15 minutes or until hot.
