DIRECTIONS

  • Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and heat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Mix the ricotta, 1 cup of the Parmesan, the basil, egg, salt, and pepper until well-combined.
  • Spread 1/4 cup of the tomato sauce over the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  • Place 3 of the noodles on top of the sauce and drop 3 tablespoons of the ricotta mixture down the center of each noodle, then spread it to an even thickness.
  • Sprinkle evenly with 1 cup of the mozzarella.
  • Spoon 1 1/2 cups of the sauce evenly over the cheese. Repeat this layering 2 more times.
  • For the final layer, place the 3 remaining noodles on top.
  • Spread the remaining 1 1/4 cups sauce over the noodles.
  • Sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup mozzarella and then the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan.
  • Spray a large sheet of foil lightly with vegetable oil spray and cover the lasagna. Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the foil and continue to bake until the cheese is browned and the sauce is bubbling, about 25 minutes longer.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
