Besides stuff for the sauce, you will need:
1/2 lb. ground beef or Italian sausage (goes in the sauce)
1 lb. box of lasagna (which will actually be a few noodles more than you need for no good reason)
15 oz. ricotta cheese
4 cups (16 oz.) shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese (pre-shredded is fine, but for the love do not use the dry kind that comes in a green plastic jar and isn't in the refrigerated section of the store.)
2. When the sauce is getting close to done, preheat the oven to 375 degrees and cook the lasagna according to the directions on the box. I like to drizzle a bit of olive oil into the boiling water before adding the pasta to keep it from sticking to itself or the pan. Once cooked, drain the noodles.
6. Remove foil and bake 5-10 minutes more, until cheese is completely melted and golden brown. (Uh, it's not in the picture and that's because we were too hungry to wait for golden cheese. Sorry. But you should!)
