I made lasagna yesterday. Like most of my cooking, I just sort of winged it.

I did buy some ingredients earlier in the week, including Italpasta Oven Ready Lasagna Noodles.

Here’s the package recipe, also on FoodWiki along with notes on my own recipe.

A few simple ingredients come together to make this no-fuss, classic lasagna. The best part is that there's no need to cook the noodles before assembling. Just layer with the sauce and cheeses, bake and serve!&10;&10;Prep Time: 30 minutes Cook Time: 1 hour 30 minutes Serves: 8&10;&10;Ingredients:&10;&10;1 pkg (375 g) ITALPASTA Presto Oven Ready Lasagne Noodles&10;1 lb (450 g) each ground beef and ricotta&10;2 cans (each 680 mL) pasta sauce&10;2 eggs, beaten&10;1/2 cup (125 mL) grated Parmesan&10;1/2 tsp (2 mL each salt and pepper&10;4 cups (1 L shredded mozzarella)&10;Steps:&10;&10;1. In saucepan, brown beef; drain fat. Add sauce; simmer for 20 minutes. In bowl, stir ricotta with eggs, Parmesan, salt and pepper.&10;&10;2. Spread some sauce in bottom of 13 x 9-inch (3.5 L) dish. Top with noodles; cover with sauce. Layer with noodles, sauce, ricotta mixture and mozzarella; repeat once. Finish with remaining noodles, sauce and mozzarella. Cover with foil.&10;&10;3. Bake at 375°F (190°C) for 50 minutes. Uncover; bake for 15 minutes. Rest for 10 minutes before serving.
