1 lb Italian sausage
1 lb. Italian sausage
0.50 cup minced onion
1 28 oz. can of crushed tomatoes
2 6 oz. cans of tomato paste
0.50 cup water
2 tbsp. sugar
1.50 tsp dried basil leaves
0.50 tsp fennel seeds
1 tbsp. salt
0.25 tsp ground black pepper
4 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
0.25 tsp dried oregano
0.25 tsp dried thyme
0.25 tsp dried rosemary
12 lasagna noodles
16 ricotta cheese
0.50 tsp Country Bob’s Seasoning Salt
0.75 lb. mozzarella cheese, sliced
0.75 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Cook sausage, ground beef, garlic and onion over medium heat until well browned.
Stir in crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce and water. Season with sugar, basil, fennel seeds, oregano, thyme, rosemary, 1 tablespoon salt, pepper, and 2 tablespoons parsley. Cover and allow to simmer for about 1.5 hours, stirring occasionally.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook lasagna noodles in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes. Drain noodles and rinse with cold water.
In a mixing bowl, combine ricotta cheese with egg, remaining parsley, and seasoning salt.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Spread 1 1/2 cups of meat sauce in the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish. Arrange 6 noodles lengthwise over meat sauce. Spread with one half of the ricotta cheese mixture. Top with 1/3 of mozzarella cheese slices. Spoon 1 1/2 cups meat sauce over mozzarella, and sprinkle with ¼ cup Parmesan cheese. Repeat layers. Top with remaining mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Cover with foil. Prevent sticking by spraying foil with cooking spray. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes.
Remove foil, and bake an additional 25 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes before serving.
