American Lasagna

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 (29 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 2 (6 ounce) cans tomato paste
  • 12 dry lasagna noodles
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 pint part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

DIRECTIONS:

In a skillet over medium heat, brown ground beef, onion and garlic for 5 minutes; drain fat.

Mix in basil, oregano, brown sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, diced tomatoes and tomato paste.

Simmer for 30 to 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add lasagna noodles, and cook for 5 to 8 minutes, or until al dente; drain.

Lay noodles flat on towels, and blot dry.

In a medium bowl, mix together eggs, ricotta, Parmesan cheese, parsley and 1 teaspoon salt.

Layer 1/3 of the lasagna noodles in the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish.

Cover noodles with 1/2 ricotta mixture, 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese and 1/3 of the sauce.

Repeat. Top with remaining noodles and sauce.

Sprinkle additional Parmesan cheese over the top.

Bake in the preheated oven 30 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
