My husband, Roger Schmidt, loves lasagna so over the years I have tried this recipe or that recipe and finally I have come up with a lasagna recipe that Roger voted as the best.

1 1/2 lb
italian sausage, mild
1 box
barilla no cook lasagna noodles
2 bottle
tomato basil spaghetti sauce (use a high quality sauce)
1 small
sweet onion, chopped
1 can(s)
2 oz of sliced black olives
1 can(s)
fire roasted chopped tomatoes
16 oz
ricotta cheese
1 large
1/2 c
parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 c
mozzarella cheese, shredded
salt and pepper
1 lb
mozzarella, shredded
1 lb
extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded


1Preheat oven to 350*. Grease lasagna pan or 9x13 pan.
2Brown sausage in a skillet. drain. set aside.
3In a bowl mix together the ricotta cheese, egg, parmesan cheese, and the 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese.
4Start layering, starting with noodles, ricotta mixture,sausage, onion, olives, tomatoes, sauce, then a combination of the sharp cheddar and the mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers until ingredients are all used (usually 3 good layers). You want to save some cheese to put on top.
5Bake for about 45 minutes or so until bubbly and the noodles are cooked through.
6NOTE: I always grate my own cheese, it melts better and there is a taste difference.
