1 lb. ground beef
˝ cup bread crumbs
1 egg
Fresh parsley, chopped fine
Warm water
Garlic, chopped
Italian seasoning
1 or 2 large jars or cans of Italian spaghetti sauce (I like my own sauce, but sometimes use Hunt’s Roasted Garlic in a can)
1 pkg. penne or ziti pasta, cooked
1 large handful of fresh parsley, chopped fine
Parmesan cheese
8 oz. mozzarella cheese, grated
4 oz. provolone cheese, grated

Mix meat, bread crumbs, egg, parsley, garlic and seasonings. Add water as needed to make and shape into meatballs. They shouldn’t be too hard. Fry in oil. Drain. Mash the meatballs and add the sauce. Simmer.
Pour some sauce in the bottom of a large lasagna or casserole pan. Add layers of the pasta, cheeses, meat and sauce. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
