Lasanga Maria

This is the BEST lasanga! I got this recipe many years ago from an issue of Southern Living Magazine. If you enjoy lasanga give this one a try. I often make this around the holidays and we never have leftovers.

Lasanga Maria

1 8 oz. package lasanga noodles
1 lb. mild bulk Italian sausage
1 32 oz. jar spaghetti sauce
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 12 oz. carton ricotta cheese
1 tbsp. parsley
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 c. Parmesan cheese
2 c. (8 oz.) shredded mozzarella cheese
1 (3 1/2 oz.) pkg sliced pepperoni

Cook lasanga then drain. Cook sausage and drain. Stir spaghetti sauce into sausage; set aside. Combine egg and next 5 ingredients, stir well. Spread about 1/2 c. meat sauce into a 13 x 9 x 2 in. pan. Layer 1/2 the noodles, 1/2 the ricotta mixture, 1/3 the mozzarella cheese and 1/3 of the remaining meat mixture. Repeat layers using equal amounts. Arrange pepperoni on top. Spoon remaining meat mixture on top. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake 5 minutes more.
