How to make it
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Cook meat, onion and oregano in a large skillet on medium heat.
- Meanwhile, mix 1-1/4 cups of the mozzarella cheese, ricotta cheese, 1/4 cup of Parmesan or Romano cheese, parsley and egg until well blended and set aside.
- Drain meat and return to skillet.
- Stir in pasta sauce and minced garlic.
- Pour water into empty sauce jar.
- Replace lid and shake well.
- Add to skillet and stir until well blended.
- Spread approximately 1 cup of the meat sauce onto the bottom of a 13 x 9 inch baking dish.
- Top with layers of 3 lasagna noodles, 1/3 of the ricotta cheese mixture and 1 cup of the meat sauce.
- Repeat layers two more times.
- Top with remaining 3 noodles and remaining meat sauce.
- Sprinkle with remaining 1-1/4 cups or more of mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup Parmesan/Romano cheese.
- Cover tightly with PAM sprayed foil.
- Bake for 1 hour.
- Remove foil and continue baking for 15-20 minutes or until heated completely through.
- Let stand 15 minutes before cutting to serve.
- Substitute 2 pkg. (1 cup each) frozen, thawed simulated ground beef for the browned ground beef.
- Adding water to the sauce helps cook traditional noodles during baking, so you don't have to cook them beforehand. This saves you 15 to 20 min. of prep time.
