1 lb lasagna noodles
5 cups tomato sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
½ cup parmesan cheese
1 lb ricotta cheese
2 tablespoons parsley
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Once the water has boiled, add salt and the lasagna noodles. They take about 10-12 minutes to cook. Stir them every so often so they do not stick together. Once they are finished cooking, strain in a colander and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Then separate the noodles and lay them over the sides of the colander so they do not get stuck together. Be careful, steam gets trapped in between the noodles and will release when you separate them.
I usually make a homemade sauce, but if you want you can use a store bought. Heat it up for a few minutes in a saucepan beforehand. In a large bowl mix together the ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, and mozzarella cheese. Then add the egg and parsley.
In a 13 x 9 inch baking dish, pour a little sauce in the bottom of the pan. Then layer 3 noodles across the bottom of the dish. Take a few teaspoonfuls on each individual lasagna noodle. Spread it across so the entire noodle is covered. Then spoon sauce over the top of the cheese layer. On the next layer, use 5 noodles and lay them in the opposite direction of the first layer. You can cut off the extra and use that on future layers. For the last layer, leave 3 noodles for the top. Lay them on the previous layer and just pour sauce on top of that without any of the cheese mixture. Sprinkle with a little bit of parmesan cheese. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 40- 45 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
