1 lb. ground beef
1 lb. bulk Italian sausage
4 to 6 cups spaghetti sauce
1 lb. uncooked lasagna noodles
In a large skillet, cook beef and sausage together until all pink is gone. Drain and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, mix all the following ingredients together:
1 lb. Ricotta cheese
1 egg, well beaten
½ cup Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Spread a thin layer of spaghetti sauce on the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish.
Place 3 (or 4) of the uncooked lasagna noodles on top of the sauce. Place about 1/3 of the cheese mixture over the noodles. Layer with about 1/3 of the meat. Sprinkle with 1/3 of the mozzarella cheese.
Start again by layering the Sauce, noodles, cheese mixture, meat, and mozzarella, until you have used everything up.
Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake in preheated 350 oven for one hour. Uncover and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
Allow to stand for 15 minutes before serving.
