Easy Beef Lasagna

I got this recipe off a jar of Ragu sauce years ago because my husband wanted "homemade lasagna". Me, a young southern newlywed had no idea what that was, or how to make it. But once I tried this recipe, my husband loved it! This past August we celebrated out 40th wedding anniversary...maybe it was the Lasagna?...
