2 lbs ground beef or turkey
Pkg or two of mild Italian sausage
1 lg sweet or red onion - chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 can tomatoes (16 oz) - diced
1 can tomato sauce (8 oz)
1 can tomato paste (12oz)
1 cup beef bouillon
2 Tbsp minced parsley
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil leaves
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

1 lb ricotta cheese
1 lb mozzarella cheese - sliced
Grated Parmesan or Romano cheese

1 box lasagna noodles - cooked just until tender

Bake sausage at 350 for 30-45 minutes until nicely browned
on all sides. Slice into 1/4 inch pieces. (Or you can also boil the sausage - you just want to cook out some of the grease.)

In a large pot, brown hamburger meat, onion and garlic. Drain off excess fat. Combine with the rest of the sauce ingredients and cook for a couple of hours on low heat (the longer the better, but you can use right away).

In 13 X 9 inch pan, layer half the cooked noodles, sauce,
mozzarella cheese, and ricotta; repeat, reserving enough
sauce for a layer on top. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup grated Parmesan

Bake in 350 oven for 45 minutes.

Personal Notes:
The sauce is a basic spaghetti sauce recipe that can be varied to taste; however, the better the sauce, the better the lasagna!
