1Preheat oven to 350°F.
2Mix ricotta cheese, 1-1/4 cups of the mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup of the parmesan cheese, parsley and egg until well blended; set aside.
3Pour spaghetti sauce into meat in skillet. Pour water into empty sauce jar; cover and shake well. Pour into skillet; stir until well mixed. (This will yield about 5 cups of sauce)
4Place 1 cup meat sauce on bottom of 13×9-inch baking dish. (So that the noodles don’t stick to the pan)
5Spread 1 cup of the meat sauce onto bottom of 13×9-inch baking dish (this way the noodles won’t stick to the pan); top with layers of 3 lasagna noodles, 1/3 of the ricotta cheese mixture and 1 cup of the meat sauce. Repeat layers two more times. Top with remaining 3 noodles and the remaining meat sauce.
6Sprinkle with remaining 1-1/4 cups mozzarella cheese and remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.
7Cover tightly with greased foil.
8Bake 45 min. Remove foil; continue baking 15 min. or until heated through. Let stand 15 min. before cutting to serve.

I like this lasagna recipe because it’s fairly simple and uses ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese.
