  2. Brown sausage in a skillet. drain. set aside.
  3. In a bowl mix together the ricotta cheese, egg, parmesan cheese, and the 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese.
  4. Start 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.
