DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • Brown meat in a skillet until fully cooked; drain fat.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Spread some of the cheese mixture on top of that, then top with another layer of noodles.
  • Repeat layers until you have used up all of your filling.
  • Sprinkle remaining mozzarella over the top, then place the slices of provolone cheese on top, leaving some gaps.
  • Cover tightly with foil and bake 45 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, leaving covered, set on top of the stove and let rest 20-30 minutes.
  • While the lasagna is resting, you can pop in a loaf of garlic bread wrapped partially in foil.
