  • 2 14.5 oz. cans tomato sauce
  • 6 uncooked lasagna noodles
  • 15 oz. ricotta cheese
  • 4 oz. mozzarella cheese
  • 2 oz. parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • Spoon a generous layer of cooked sauce into a 9”X12” baking pan.
  • Spoon in half the ricotta cheese, then layer on 3 lasagna noodles.
  • Add another layer of sauce, the rest of the ricotta and half of the mozzarella.
  • Top with the remaining noodles. Add the rest of the sauce, then top with the remaining mozzarella and parmesan cheeses.
  • Cover lasagna pan with aluminum foil for baking.
