Keywords: lasagna, easy, pasta, tested, typed

2 1/2 cups spaghetti sauce
1 cup water
8 oz. (9 pieces) lasagne, uncooked
1 3/4 c. (15 oz) part skim ricotta cheese
3 cups (12 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 TB chopped fresh parsley

Heat oven to 375. Heat spaghetti sauce and water. Mix ricotta, 2 cups
mozzarella and Parmesan cheese and parsley. Pour 3/4 cup sauce in 13 x 9
pan. Arrange 3 pieces uncooked pasta lengthwise over sauce. Pour 1/2 cup
sauce over pasta; spread with half cheese mixture. Cover with 1/2 cup
sauce. Repeat layers. Top with remaining pasta and sauce. Repeat layers.
Top with remaining pasta and sauce; sprinkle with additional Paremsan.
Cover with foil; bake 60 min. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup mozzarella;
let stand 10 min. 8 servings.

(Note: You can make this as low fat as you want depending on the types of
cheese. If you use choose a low fat spaghetti sauce (either bought or
homemade), fatfree ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan along with yolk free
noodles, the finished product is almost fat free. When I make this I use
a large jar of spaghetti sauce - about 28 oz - instead of the 2 1/2 cups
called for. Also, I usually use 4 noodles per layer. Sometimes I add a 10
oz. box of frozen thawed chopped broccoli or chopped spinach to the
ricotta mixture. This is a very good lasagna recipe which I make often
using fat-free products. If you don't like fat-free, low-fat products
could be used. You can also use it to make manicotti . Simply stuff the
uncooked manicotti noodles with the cheese mixture. Put a layer of sauce
in the bottom of the pan and then cover the noodles with remaining sauce.
Cover and bake as above.)

I have a good and easy homemade spaghetti sauce you could use in this

1 can (6 oz) tomato paste
2 cans water
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp oregano (or more to taste)
1/2 tsp crushed dried red peppers
(this is what makes it good. It is not enought to be hot)

Mix above ingredients together and simmer to blend flavors. You can add
any ingredients you like to this basic recipe (peppers, mushrooms, onions,
TVP, ground beef, zucchini, etc.)
