* This recipe is way easy, especially with the noodles you don't have to cook. I was nervous about trying them at first, but that's all I ever use now.
1 Package No-Cook lasagna noodles
1 can (26 oz.) Hunt's Traditional spaghetti sauce *
16 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese (plus another handful of mozz. for the top) *
1 tub (16 oz. I think) Ricotta cheese
1 Tb parsley flakes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
MIX in large bowl Ricotta Cheese, Mozzarella Cheese, and Parsley flakes until well blended.
In 9x13 deep baking pan spread a few tablespoons of sauce to cover the bottom of the pan. Divide cheese mixture into 3 even amounts. On top of the layer of sauce lay 3 or 4 noodles. (depending on the shape of you pan or which direction you place your noodles) On top of noodles spoon cheese mixture and try to spread it out with the spoon a bit. (it will all melt together in the oven anyway so it does not have to be perfect) On top of the cheese layer spoon 1/3 of the spaghetti sauce. Then start the next layer over again with the noodles.
After the last layer of spaghetti sauce, top with a handful of Mozzarella Cheese.
BAKE for 35 to 40 mintues or until the cheese on top is starting to brown.
SPRINKLE with Parmesan Cheese when it comes out of the oven.
* I use Hunts Traditional spaghetti sauce, its the flavor we like best at my house, but you could use any kind you like.
* the Mozzarella cheese you can use more or less depending on how cheese you want your lasagna.
