Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon oil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground Italian sausage
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 jars Montebello pasta sauce
  • 15-18 sheets Montebello Lasagne Noodles
  • 15oz whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 1 pound mozzarella cheese, shredded or sliced thin
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan over high heat, add the oil and brown the beef and sausage, crumbling it with a spatula as it cooks.  Once browed, drain fat and add red pepper, the jars of sauce and 2/3 cup water.  Cover and let simmer over medium heat for 6-7 minutes, mixing occasionally.
  2. Assemble your lasagna in a 9’x13” lasagna pan. Start with a layer of the meat sauce on the bottom of the pan. Top with a layer of lasagna noodles, overlapping slightly. Spread ½ of the ricotta over the noodles and top with 1/3 of the mozzarella and 1/3 of the parmesan.  Repeat layers, ending with noodles and then topping with remaining cheeses.
  3. Spray aluminum foil with non-stick spray and cover.  Let rest at least 1 hour before cooking.
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  5. Bake covered for 35 minutes.  Remove foil and bake uncovered for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until bubbly and slightly browned.  For additional browning, return to broiler for 3 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool at least 15 minutes prior to serving.
