    HeatherFeather's Note:

    This is my basic easy lasagna. I either use homemade sauce or a really good quality store bought brand. There are four types of cheese in this recipe. If you like things spicy, by all means add a bit of crushed red pepper to the sauce or use spicy sausage. If I am adding sausage, I prefer to use mild turkey sausage in this, but it tastes really good with just ground beef too.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 F and lightly grease a deep 9x13" casserole, spread just a couple of spoonfuls of spaghetti sauce in the bottom of the pan and set aside.
    2. 2
      Brown meat in a skillet until fully cooked; drain fat.
    3. 3
      Combine the cooked meat with the rest of the spaghetti sauce and a few shakes of garlic powder, heat until warmed through, about 5-10 minutes.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, half of the shredded mozzarella cheese, the Parmesan cheese, the eggs, a few liberal shakes of garlic powder, parsley, salt and pepper, mixing well.
    5. 5
      Place a layer of lasagna noodles in the bottom of the prepared baking dish, then pour some of the meat sauce, spreading to cover evenly.
    6. 6
      Spread some of the cheese mixture on top of that, then top with another layer of noodles.
    7. 7
      Repeat layers until you have used up all of your filling.
    8. 8
      Sprinkle remaining mozzarella over the top, then place the slices of provolone cheese on top, leaving some gaps.
    9. 9
      Cover tightly with foil and bake 45 minutes.
    10. 10
      Remove from oven, leaving covered, set on top of the stove and let rest 20-30 minutes.
    11. 11
      While the lasagna is resting, you can pop in a loaf of garlic bread wrapped partially in foil.

      This is exactly the way I have made my casserole for years. I also use Italian turkey sausage, sometimes cooked and sliced or ground (cooked). I don't know that real Italian chefs prepare it this way, but we all love it. So glad to see you posted this.
