15 Lasagna noodles
1 lb Italian sausage or ground beef, cooked and drained
2 jars spaghetti sauce
1 Tbsp brown sugar, optional
15 oz. Ricotta cheese
4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 eggs, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 375. Cook noodles, drain and separate. In a large saucepan, combine cooked meat, sauce and brown sugar, simmer 5 minutes. In a large bowl, combine ricotta cheese, 3 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese and eggs. Spray 13x9 baking dish with cooking spray. Spread a little sauce over the bottom of the baking dish. Place 4-5 lasagna noodles over the bottom, slightly overlapping. Spread half of the cheese mixture over noodles and cover with meat sauce. Repeat layers. Cover last layer with remaining noodles and remaining sauce. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 10 minutes before serving.

**To make it a little easier, just exclude the ricotta mixture, only use mozzarella cheese and you have a basic lasagna.
