Instructions

For the meat sauce:

  • In a large Dutch oven, cook sausage, ground beef, onion, and garlic over medium heat until cooked through and browned. Drain any excess grease, if needed.
  • Add the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce, and water, and stir everything together.
  • Add sugar (if using), basil, Italian seasoning, 2 teaspoons salt, pepper, and 2 Tablespoons parsley, and stir to combine.
  • Simmer, covered, for at least 1½ hours, stirring occasionally. I usually try to simmer for as long as possible.

For the ricotta cheese mixture:

  • In a bowl, combine ricotta cheese, egg, 2 Tablespoons parsley, and ½ teaspoon salt. Refrigerate until needed.

For assembling the lasagna:

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • To assemble, spread 1½ cups of meat sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Arrange a single layer of three noodles over meat sauce. 
  • Spread with one half of the ricotta cheese mixture. Top with 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese.
  • Spoon 1½ cups meat sauce over mozzarella, and sprinkle with ¼ cup Parmesan cheese.
  • Repeat layers, and top with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.
  • Cover with foil and bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes.
  • Remove foil, and bake an additional 25 minutes.
  • Cool for 15 minutes before serving.
