Simple No Fuss Lasagna

I love this recipe because it is so easy!  There is no need to cook the noodles ahead.  I don’t usually buy pre-made sauce in a bottle, but I used an organic bottled spaghetti sauce.

  • 1 lb. ground beef    
  • 1 (26-30 oz.) jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1 (14.5 oz.) can stewed tomatoes
  • 1/8 tsp. ground red pepper
  • 1 (15 oz.) carton ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 (8 oz.) package lasagna noodles
  • 1 (8 oz.) package mozzarella cheese

Brown beef and drain.  Stir in sauce, tomatoes, and pepper.  In another bowl, combine Ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese and egg.  Grease 9 x 13 pan.

  1. I use 16 oz. cottage cheese, two eggs and parsley in lieu of ricotta. Tastes just as good and half the cost of the ricotta. This was what our mom used to do and it is delicious also.
