This week, my recipe is Lasagna!

1 lb. ground beef
1 egg, beaten
2-1/2 cups Shredded Low-Moisture Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese, divided
1 container (15 oz.) Part Skim Ricotta Cheese
1/2 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese, divided
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 jar (26 oz.) spaghetti sauce
1 cup water
12 lasagna noodles, uncooked

PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Brown meat in large skillet on medium-high heat. Meanwhile, mix egg, 1-1/4 cups of the mozzarella cheese, the ricotta cheese, 1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese and the parsley until well blended; set aside.

DRAIN meat; return to skillet. Stir in spaghetti sauce. Add water to empty sauce jar; cover with lid and shake well. Add to meat mixture; stir until well blended. Spread 1 cup of the sauce onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish; top with layers of 3 lasagna noodles, one-third of the ricotta cheese mixture and 1 cup of the sauce. Repeat layers twice. Top with remaining 3 noodles and the remaining meat sauce. Sprinkle with remaining 1-1/4 cups mozzarella cheese and remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Cover with greased foil.

BAKE 45 min. Remove foil; bake an additional 15 min. or until heated through. Let stand 15 min. before cutting to serve.

I had trouble with this one. The noodles didn't want to get done. I had to leave it in the oven longer. But it was delicious. My "picky" daughter-in-law even liked it. LOL If you want, you could substitute Italian sausage for the ground beef.
