Directions

  1. 1 Cook and drain lasagna noodles as directed on package; place in cold water to cool.
  2. 2 Meanwhile, in 4-quart saucepan or Dutch oven, cook beef, sausage and onions over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until beef and sausage are thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in tomatoes, tomato paste, basil, sugar, oregano, salt and garlic powder, breaking up tomatoes. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; simmer uncovered 30 to 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until very thick.
  3. 3 In medium bowl, beat eggs. Stir in ricotta, cottage and Parmesan cheeses and parsley; set aside.
  4. 4 Heat oven to 350°F. In ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish, spread about 1/2 cup beef mixture. Top beef mixture with 3 noodles, half of the cheese mixture, half of the remaining beef mixture and half of the mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers, starting with noodles and ending with mozzarella cheese.
  5. 5 Bake 35 to 45 minutes or until lasagna is bubbly and top is golden brown. Cover with foil; let stand 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
