This is a great recipe and my kids love this. The nice part of this is I make two at once and freeze the second one for another meal. Preheat oven to 350 degrees while preparing the dish.
1 package lasagna noodles (uncooked)
4 large jars of RAGU six cheese sauce (or your favorite sauce will do)
1 large container of Ricotta Cheese
4 cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1 - 2 pounds of sausage (I like to use one tube of maple and one tube of Italian from the freezer section mixing the two sausages gives is a great sweetened flavor) you can use hamburger or any other meat you prefer.
1 cup chopped onions (my family does not like the onions so they don't go in mine)
2 - 9x13 cake pans
In skillet, cook your meat until done. Drain off any grease in pan. While the sausage is cooking, pour a small amount of your sauce into the bottom of both pans and spread it out to all edges. Take your uncooked lasagna noodles and start lining the pan (these can be broke in half to fit your pan). Pour a little more sauce on top and spread it out to cover noodles (the noodles cook with the help of the sauce and its easier than cooking the noodles ahead of time). Spoon your sausage onto the noodles and spread out. Spoon out some Ricotta cheese onto the meat (this does not have to be spread out as it will melt). Sprinkle 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese. Put more noodles ontop and repeat with the layers until about 1/4 inch from top. ending with the sauce ontop of the noodles. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and place in oven. Cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour on the upper rack of the oven. When the cheese is golden brown, remove and let sit for 5 minutes and enjoy. Total prep time is about 1/2 hour but you get two meals out of this one. Great leftovers for work!
I usually make them both at the same time alternating from one pan to the other making them both equall in size. I don't cook the second one, I cover it and put it in the freezer for another meal.
