In this recipe, no-boil noodles are actually not your best option. The best results came from using Tinkyada Brown Rice Lasagne Noodles. If you use no-boil Barilla noodles, you'll need extra water and perhaps a longer cooking time.
Heat oil, then add ground beef and onion. Cook until beef is browned and onion is translucent.
Stir in garlic and Italian seasoning, followed by the marinara sauce and water.
Transfer some of the sauce to a bowl and set aside, leaving about one-third of the sauce in the pan.
Stir together ricotta, egg, and dried parsley.
Scatter half of the pasta pieces over the sauce, then dollop with about half of the ricotta mixture.
Spread half of the remaining sauce over the pasta and ricotta. Then repeat the layers, finishing with sauce. Cover and simmer for 30-40 minutes.
Remove the lid, and sprinkle the mozzarella and parmesan cheese over the top. Cover and cook for another 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted.
Sprinkle with parsley and more parmesan if desired before serving.
Spoon onto plates with your favorite side dishes for an easy comfort food meal.
