Sauce: 3 Tbsp olive oil (divided), 1 point Italian sweet sausages (casings removed), and 2 oz sliced prosciutto (chopped).

2 cups chopped onions, 1 celery stalk (chopped), 3 garlic cloves (chopped), 1 tsp dried oregano, 1/4 tsp dried crushed red pepper, 2 Tbsp tomato paste, 1 28 oz can italian-style tomatoes in juice (chopped with juices reserved), 2 Tbsp chopped fresh basil (half that if using dried)

Directions:
For sauce: heat 1 Tbsp oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add sausage, saute until browned, breaking up with a fork, about 6 minutes. Add prosciutto; stir 1 minute. Transfer mixture to bowl.
Heat 2 Tbsp oil in same pan over medium-high heat. Add onions and next four ingredients. Saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato paste. Add tomatoes with reserved juice, basil and sausage mixture. Reduce heat; simmer until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. This can be made 1 day ahead; just cover and refrigerate.

For lasagna:
Cook noodles in a large pot of boiling salted water until just tender but still firm to bite. Drain. Arrange in single layer on baking sheet. Stir ricotta and 1.5 cups mozzarella in bowl. Season with salt and pepper, mix in egg.

Brush 13x9x2" glass baking dish with oil. Spread one cup tomato sauce evenly over bottom. Arrange three noodles atop sauce. Spread 3/4 cup cheese mixture thinly over noodles. Spoon 1.5 cups sauce over. Repeat with noodles, cheese mixture, and sauce 2 more times. Cover with three noodles. Sprinkly with remaining 1/2 cup mozz. Cover with foil (can be prepared 1 day ahead; Chill).

Bake lasagna, covered, 40 minutes. Uncover and bake until heated through, about 15 minutes longer. Let stand 15 minutes and serve.

Personal Notes:
Couldn't find smoked mozz once and so used 1 cup regular mozz and 1 cup smoked gouda (both grated). Just as good.
Also, we make more sauce than the recipe calls for as we're big fans of red sauce!

This recipe is simply outstanding and although it's expensive, it's SO worth it!!!!
