Easy Lasagna

20130916-191756.jpg
Prep time: 20 min
Total: 1 hr 35 min
Servings total:12 servings

Ingredients

1lb. ground beef
2-1/2 cups Mozzarella Cheese, divided
1 container (15 oz.) Ricotta Cheese
1/2cup Grated Parmesan Cheese, divided
1 egg, beaten
1 jar (24 oz.) favourite spaghetti sauce
1 cup water
12 lasagna noodles, uncooked

Instructions

HEAT oven to 350°F.

BROWN meat in large skillet on medium-high heat. Meanwhile, mix 1-1/4 cups mozzarella, ricotta, 1/4 cup Parmesan, parsley and egg until blended.

DRAIN meat; return to skillet. Stir in spaghetti sauce. Add 1 cup water to empty sauce jar; adding the water to the sauce helps cook the traditional noodles during baking, so you don’t have to cook them beforehand. This saves you 15 to 20 minutes of prep time. Add water to meat mixture; stir until blended. Spread 1 cup meat sauce onto bottom of 13×9-inch baking dish; top with layers of 3 lasagna noodles, 1/3 of the ricotta cheese mixture and 1 cup meat sauce. Repeat layers twice. Top with remaining noodles, meat sauce and cheeses. Cover with foil sprayed with cooking spray.

BAKE 1 hour or until heated through, removing foil after 45 min. Let stand 15 min. before cutting to serve.
