1 1/2 lb ground beef
1 Large jar spagetti sauce
1 1/2 cup water
15 oz Ricotta Cheese (can substitute cottage cheese)
12 oz shredded mozzarella cheese (or substitute swiss cheese)
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped parsley or parsley flakes
1 tsp. salt (or more)
1/4 tsp. pepper (or more)
8 lasagne noodles
Brown beef and season to taste. Drain off the fat. Add sauce and water. Simmer about 10 minutes. Combine remaining ingredients except lasagne noodles for the filling. Pour about 1 cup sauce on the bottom of a 9"x13" pan. Layer 3 uncooked lasagne noodles over the sauce. Cover with about 1 1/2 cups sauce. Spread 1/2 cheese filling over sauce. (Note: It doesn't matter if cheese mixture and sauce get mixed together while spreading.) Repeat layers of lasagne, sauce, and cheese filling. Top with last layer of remaining 3 lasagne noodles and sauce. Cover with aluminim foil and bak at 350 degrees F for 55 to 60 minutes. Remove foil and bak about 10 minutes longer. Allow to stand 10 minutes before serving.
* Lasagna noodles will expand to fill empty spaces when cooked.
* Soften cheese mixture slightly for easier spreading.
