  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped green bell pepper (1 small bell pepper)
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion (about 1/2 of a medium yellow onion)
  • 1 (8-ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 (24 ounce) jar or can of traditional pasta sauce
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 6 ounces “oven ready” lasagna noodles (1/2 of a 12-ounce package), each noodle broken into thirds

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2/3 cups ricotta cheese
  • Fresh chopped parsley for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet over medium high heat, cook hamburger (crumbling hamburger as it cooks), onion bell pepper and mushrooms until hamburger is no longer pink, about 6-7 minutes. Drain off excess fat.
  2. Stir in pasta sauce and Italian seasoning. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Remove from heat. Gently stir in the Parmesan cheese and 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese, being careful not to tear noodles.
  5. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese. Using a cookie scoop or spoon, evenly top with ricotta cheese. Sprinkle with parsley if desired.
