    My Lasagna

    1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
    1 onion, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    2 T. Brown sugar
    1-1/2 salt
    1 (29oz) can of diced tomatoes with garlic, basil, and oregano
    3 (6oz) cans tomato paste
    12 dry lasagna noodles
    2 eggs, beaten
    1 pint part-skim ricotta cheese
    1/2 cup grated parmesan
    2 T. dried parsley
    1 t. salt
    1 pound mozzarella cheese, shredded (I use extra and sometimes add other kinds of cheeses)
    2 T. grated parmesan

    In a skillet over medium heat, brown ground beef, onion and garlic; drain fat. Mix in brown sugar, 1-1/2 t. salt, tomatoes, and paste. Simmer for 20-45 minutes stirring occasionally.
    Preheat ove to 375 degrees. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add lasagna noodles, and cook for 5-8 minutes. Lay noodles flat and blot dry.
    In a medium bowl, mix together eggs, ricotta, parmesan, parsley, ans salt.
    Layer 1/3 noodles on bottom of a greased 13x9 baking dish. Cover noodles with 1/2 ricotta mixture, 1/2 mozzarella cheese and 1/3 of sauce. Repeat. Top with remaining noodles and sauce. Sprinkle with additional parmesan on top. (I also add extra mozzerella.) Bake in oven 30 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
