My mom always made the best lasagna growing up and it was and still is a favorite comfort food for me. This is the same recipe my mom always used so it’s most defiantly tried and true. My pasta sauce of choice is Prego chunky garden in tomato, onion and garlic. I just find Prego to be a nice overall quality compared to other sauces. I love serving garlic bread, salad with homemade dressing alongside this meal.

12 ounces lean ground beef or lamb
1 white onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 lb (24 ounces) pasta sauce
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
No bake lasagna noodles (approximately 6)
1 egg, beaten
1 (15 ounce) container ricotta cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese + more for topping
1-1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1. For sauce, in a sauté pan on medium heat add meat, onion and garlic until meat is brown. Pour 1/2 cup of sauce into small bowl and pour remainder into meat. Bring to a full boil; reduce heat to low and cover cooking for 15 minutes.

2. Pre-heat oven to 375F. In a large mixing bowl add egg, ricotta, parsley and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese; set aside.

3. Spread 1/2 cup of pasta sauce over the bottom of a 2-quart rectangular baking dish. Layer half of the noodles in the dish, breaking any as needed to fit. Spread with the ricotta cheese mixture, mozzarella cheese and meat mixture. Continue until you end with the meat mixture. Sprinkle top with mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.

4. Place baking dish on a baking sheet. Bake for 35-45 minutes until thoroughly heated. Allow to stand at least 10 minutes before serving.

Yields: 8 servings
