Lasagna


Ingredients
  1. 1 pound sweet Italian sausage
  2. 3/4 pound lean ground beef
  3. 1/2 cup minced onion
  4. 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  5. 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  6. 2 (6 ounce) cans tomato paste
  7. 2 (6.5 ounce) cans canned tomato sauce
  8. 1/2 cup water
  9. 2 tablespoons white sugar
  10. 1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil leaves
  11. 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
  12. 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  13. 1 tablespoon salt
  14. 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  15. 4 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  16. 12 lasagna noodles
  17. 16 ounces ricotta cheese
  18. 1 egg
  19. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  20. 3/4 pound mozzarella cheese, sliced
  21. 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese



Directions

1. In a Dutch oven, cook sausage, ground
beef, onion, and garlic over medium heat
until well browned. Stir in crushed
tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce,
and water. Season with sugar, basil, fennel
seeds, Italian seasoning, 1 tablespoon salt,
pepper, and 2 tablespoons parsley.
Simmer, covered, for about 1 1/2 hours,
stirring occasionally.


2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to

a boil. Cook lasagna noodles in boiling
water for 8 to 10 minutes. Drain noodles,
and rinse with cold water. In a mixing
bowl, combine ricotta cheese with egg,
remaining parsley, and 1/2 teaspoon salt.


3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190

degrees C).


4. To assemble, spread 1 1/2 cups of meat

sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking
dish. Arrange 6 noodles lengthwise over
meat sauce. Spread with one half of the
ricotta cheese mixture. Top with a third of
mozzarella cheese slices. Spoon 1 1/2
cups meat sauce over mozzarella, and
sprinkle with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.
Repeat layers, and top with remaining
mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Cover
with foil: to prevent sticking, either spray
foil with cooking spray, or make sure the
foil does not touch the cheese.


5. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes.

Remove foil, and bake an additional 25
minutes. Cool for 15 minutes before
serving.
