Recipe by Denise
READY IN: 1hr 30mins




  • Brown ground round, onions and green pepper in skillet or dutch oven.
  • When about half browned add the garlic powder, salt, pepper, oregano, basil and thyme.
  • When finished browning, remove from heat and add red wine to deglaze pan.
  • After deglazing, add spaghetti sauce and continue to simmer for approximately 10-15 minutes.
  • The best part here is that you get to sample a little sauce and add any extras you think it needs.
  • Maybe a little more garlic or pepper?
  • Adjust to your tastes.
  • Ladle a small amount of spaghetti sauce into a 9x13 inch pan.
  • This is more to keep the noodles from sticking than anything else.
  • Cover bottom of pan with DRY noodles and add more sauce.
  • Top with one third of all the cheeses- mozzarella, cheddar, jack cheese& parmesan.
  • Add another layer of noodles and coat with the container of ricotta cheese.
  • Sprinkle generously with parmesan and more white cheeses.
  • Add the final layer of noodles, the rest of the sauce, and the rest of the cheeses.
  • Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake at 375 for 30 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to 350 and bake for an additional 30 minutes.
  • Let rest 10 minutes before serving.
