My husband refuses to eat anything with Ricotta Cheese. I tried several different versions and this was his favorite. Now, it's the only lasagna I fix.

This lasagna was delicious and super easy! I don't like ricotta so it was perfect. I did add a bit of salt and about 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes to the ground beef mixture, and a tablespoon or so of both fresh parsley and fresh basil to the sauce mixture before layering.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 9 lasagna noodles
- 1 1⁄2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
- 1⁄2 cup parmesan cheese
- 1 small white onion, chopped
- 3 1⁄2 cups spaghetti sauce
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1⁄2 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
