Ingredients

  • 1 pound mild Italian sausage
  • 1 (15-oz.) container part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup refrigerated ready-made pesto
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 (26-oz.) jars pasta sauce
  • 9 no-boil lasagna noodles
  • 4 cups (16 oz.) shredded Italian three-cheese blend or mozzarella cheese

Preparation

  1. 1. Remove and discard casings from sausage. Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring until meat crumbles and is no longer pink; drain.
  2. 2. Stir together ricotta cheese, pesto, and egg.
  3. 3. Spread half of 1 jar pasta sauce evenly in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Layer with 3 lasagna noodles (noodles should not touch each other or sides of dish), half of ricotta mixture, half of sausage, 1 cup three-cheese blend, and remaining half of 1 jar pasta sauce. Repeat layers using 3 lasagna noodles, remaining ricotta mixture, remaining sausage, 1 cup three-cheese blend. Top with remaining 3 noodles and second jar of pasta sauce, covering noodles completely. Sprinkle evenly with remaining 2 cups three-cheese blend.
  4. 4. Bake, covered, at 350° for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake 15 more minutes or until cheese is melted and edges are lightly browned and bubbly. Let stand 15 minutes.
  5. Note: For testing purposes only, we used Classico Tomato & Basil spaghetti sauce and Barilla Lasagne Oven-Ready noodles.
