1
To make meat sauce: In a large pot add 2 TBSP olive oil and simmer chopped onions over medium heat about 5 minutes. Add pressed garlic and sauté additional 2 minutes stirring constantly. Add ground beef and sauté until all pink is gone.
Add 1 cup marinara, add wine, mix well and cook for a few minutes. Add 1 cup marinara sauce, bay leaves, salt, pepper, thyme, sugar and parsley. Mix well, reduce heat, cover and simmer 15-20 minutes.
2
To make Cheese Sauce: Make while meat sauce is simmering. Combine all cheese sauce ingredients and mix well.
Boil 1 package of lasagna noodles until cooked al dente.
3
Assembly: Preheat oven to 375degrees. Spread a couple tablespoons of meat sauce in the bottom of your 9x13 pyrex baking dish. Place 3-4 noodles on the bottom of dish so that edges are touching. Add half of the meat sauce, then half of the cheese sauce, 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese sprinkled evenly. Now add 3-4 more noodles. Repeat layers as above. Line the top of the lasagna with 9-12 evenly space toothpicks. Cover the top with foil, not air tight. Bake 45 minutes.
