"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Bring 3 qts of water and the salt to a boil. Add EVOO. Add lasagna noodles (2 or 3 pieces at a time) to the boiling water. Cook noodles uncovered for 15 minutes, gently stirring occasionally. Drain and rinse under hot water. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 13x9x2” pan.

Assemble lasagna: Spoon 1/3 sauce evenly into bottom of greased pan. On sauce layer 1/3 noodles, Ricotta, Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Repeat twice, beginning with sauce and ending with Parmesan cheese. Bake uncovered 45 to 50 minutes or until cheese is melted and the top is browned. Let lasagna stand for 10 to 15 minutes before cutting to make serving easier.
