DIRECTIONS

  • Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions; drain and set aside.
  • In a large skillet heat the 2 or 3 tbsp olive oil (your choice of how much to use) add the Italian sausage, onion, and mushrooms (cook sausage well).
  • Stir in spaghetti sauce, garlic powder, salt, oregano, and basil. Cook until sauce is bubbly & heated through.
  • In a 2-quart buttered baking dish (I'm lazy & use Pam spray) (about 11x7x2-inches), layer 1/3 of the lasagna noodles, 1/3 of the sauce and 1/3 of the ricotta cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, and Parmesan cheeses. Repeat layers twice. Note: I use more then 1 & 1/2 cups of the ricotta cheese so use best judgment & what looks good to you. 1 & 1/2 is pretty much an estimate of how much to use. My family seems to like it with extra ricotta.
  • Bake lasagna at 350° for about 30 minutes, or until thoroughly heated and bubbly & the cheese looks melted & toasty on the top. Let stand for 8 to 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
