Here's a way to make meaty, cheesy lasagna without the fuss.

Ingredients

1
lb mild bulk Italian pork sausage or ground beef
1
jar (26 to 28 oz) tomato pasta sauce
1
cup water
1
container (15 oz) ricotta cheese
2
tablespoons chopped fresh chives
1/2
teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1
egg
8
oz uncooked lasagna noodles
1
package (16 oz) sliced mozzarella cheese
2
tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Steps

  • 1 In 12-inch skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink. Drain well. Stir in pasta sauce and water. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; simmer 5 minutes.
  • 2 In medium bowl, mix ricotta cheese, chives, oregano and egg.
  • 3 In ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish or lasagna pan, spread 1 1/2 cups of the meat sauce. Top with half each of the uncooked noodles, ricotta cheese mixture and mozzarella cheese. Repeat with 1 1/2 cups meat sauce and remaining noodles, ricotta cheese mixture and mozzarella cheese. Top with remaining meat sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cover; refrigerate 12 hours or overnight.
  • 4 Heat oven to 350°F. Uncover baking dish; bake 50 to 60 minutes or until noodles are tender and casserole is bubbly. Cover; let stand 15 minutes before serving.

Expert Tips

Instead of Italian sausage, try making this lasagna with ground beef instead.

For added flavor, use provolone cheese instead of the mozzarella.
