32 oz ricotta cheese
4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 jars of your favorite spaghetti sauce
12 lasagna noodles (cooked or oven ready)

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Mix ricotta cheese, 2 1/2 cups mozzarella, 1/4 cup Parmesan, parsley and egg until well blended.
Spoon some spaghetti sauce onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish; top with 3 lasagna noodles and 1/3 of ricotta cheese mixture. Repeat layers of sauce, noodles and ricotta cheese mixture 2 more times. Cover with remaining noodles and sauce. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan.

Bake 45 min. or until heated through. Cover if top browns too much. Let stand 15 min. before cutting to serve.

Recipe can be halved and baked in an 8x8 pan.
