Lasagna (Easy)

1 lb hamburger
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 (32 oz) jar spaghetti sauce
3/4 cup water
1/2 package (8 oz) lasagna noodles UNCOOKED
2 cups (1 lb) ricotta cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 TBL parsley
3-4 cups mozzarella cheese (16 oz)

Brown hambuger with onion.  Add spaghetti sauce and water to browned hamburger.  In seperate bowl combine ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, and parsley.  Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray then layer ingredients in the following order.  1/3 of the sauce, 1/2 of the uncooked noodles, 1/2 of the ricotta cheese mixture and 1/3 of the mozzarella cheese.  Repeat layer and finish off with the last 1/3 of sauce and mozzarella cheese on top.  Cover tightly with tin foil.  Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour.  Let stand 10-15 minutes before serving.

Another kid favorite!  And mine also.  I love home made LASAGNA!  This recipe came from my mother-in-law.  When I make it I do like to add about 1 cup of cottage cheese to the ricotta cheese mixture also.  Then you can call it a 4 CHEESE LASAGNA!  It is simplified by not having to deal with cooking the noodles.  You can actually find "Ready To Bake" noodles at the grocery store now.

Too funny - I was gonna comment that I was so glad to see a lasagna recipe with NO cottage cheese... then you said you add in in your comments! LOL When we do lasagna it's usually the frozen Stouffer's kind. Mayne we'll branch out & give this a go! Do you use the regular lasagna noodles or the no-boil ones in this?
