Cathy's Recipe


  • 1 lb lasagna noodles

  • 2 lbs ground beef

  • 1 32oz jar spaghetti sauce (I use Ragu with green peppers and mushrooms)

  • 1 cup cut up onion

  • 1 cup cut up green pepper

  • 1 lb ricotta cheese

  • 2 eggs

  • 2-3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (pizza cheese)

~Lasagna noodles boil for 5 minutes, drained. Put boiled noodles aside for now. ~

~Brown meat in fry pan along with the onions and peppers, you can season with Italian seasoning if you choose to. ~

~Drain, add spaghetti sauce and let simmer for about 30 minutes. ~

~Meanwhile, put ricotta cheese in a bowl and add eggs, mix well. ~

~After meat has simmered it's time to layer. ~

~You will need a 13x9 pan and then do the following: ~

~Put a small amount of the meat sauce in the bottom of the pan, this helps keep the noodles from sticking to the bottom. Sort of like greasing a pan when you bake a cake. ~

~Next put a layer of noodles in the pan, top with some meat sauce. ~

~Lay more noodles on top, put some of the ricotta chesse and egg mixute on top of that layer. ~

~Put more noodles and layer more meat.~

~Do this until all ingredients have been used up ending with the meat sauce.  ~

~Put shredded mozzarella cheese on top and bake in a 350 oven for about an hour. ~

"I usually cover this for about 45 minutes while baking and then remove the foil for the last 15 minutes so the cheese gets nice and melted and a little browned."
