1 lb. ground beef
3/4 c. chopped onion
2 tbsp. salad or olive oil
1 (1 lb.) can tomatoes
2 (6 oz.) cans tomato paste
2 c. water
1 tbsp. chopped parsley
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. oregano leaves
1/2 (8 oz.) pkg. lasagna noodles
1 lb. Ricotta cheese
8 oz. Mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 c. grated Parmesan cheese

In large, heavy pan, lightly brown beef and onion in oil. Add tomatoes (put through blender or cut with spoon), paste, water, parsley, salt, sugar, garlic powder, pepper, and oregano. Simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, cook lasagna as directed; drain. In 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking pan, spread about 1 cup of sauce. Then alternate layers of lasagna, sauce, Ricotta, Mozzarella, and Parmesan. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes until lightly browned and bubbling. Allow to stand 15 minutes; cut in squares to serve. Makes 8 servings.

Thank you for sharing your recipe. I will try this one.

I've looke online and was disappointed on how difficult it looked to make. Plus prep time was a major factor for me. I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanks again. I look forward to making this.
