Meat and cheese packed lasagna that is absolutely delicious.
  1. In a large pot over medium heat, add in the sausage and ground beef. Use a wooden spoon to break up the meat into small pieces. Add in onion and garlic and cook until meat is browned. Stir in sugar, basil, fennel, oregano, 1/2 tsp salt and pepper to taste, and 1/4 cup parsley. Pour in crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce, and chicken broth. Stir well and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and simmer 1 hour stirring occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile place lasagna noodles into the bottom of a pan. Pour hot water over the noodles, making sure the pasta is completely immersed in water. Let them soak for 30 minutes, then drain and discard water.
  3. In a mixing bowl combine ricotta with egg, 2 Tbsp parsley, 1/2 tsp salt, and nutmeg. Refrigerate until ready to assemble lasagna.
  4. Preheat oven to 375F. Lightly grease a deep 9x13 pan.
  5. To assemble spread about 1 cup meat sauce in the bottom of the pan. Place 3 noodles on top. Spread with 1/3 of the ricotta mixture. Top with 1/4 of the mozzarella slices. Spoon 1 1/2 cups meat sauce over the mozzarella, then sprinkle with 1/4 cup parmesan. Repeat layering 2 more times to create 3 complete layers. To finish, place a final layer of pasta, topped with another 1 cup meat sauce to cover the pasta. Top with the remaining mozzarella and parmesan. Cover loosely with foil.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 25 minutes. Enjoy!

  1. The lasagne looks delicious! I like the idea of pouring hot water over the noodles. Much easier that way.
