** Let me first say lasagna is so hard to get a good picture of, so please excuse the picture- it tastes a lot better then it looks!

Tonight John and I brought dinner to my parents. I made lasagna because it is one of my favorite foods and also one of the least practical foods for me to make for just us since we don't typically like left overs. This is my classic way to make lasagna... No real recipe, just noodles and cheese!

1 box of lasagna
15 oz. ricotta cheese
2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
1 egg
1 jar (or equivalent amount) of sauce

Preheat oven to 350
Cook noodles according to package, drain
In a small bowl, beat the egg and the ricotta cheese together until smooth.
Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Pour some sauce on the bottom of the pan until the bottom is lightly coated.
Lay 3 noodles across the bottom of the pan- top with 1/2 cup ricotta cheese- spread evenly
Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
Top with a layer of sauce.
Repeat layering until the ingredients are complete.
Bake for 40 minutes or until hot in the center.

*I like to alternate the directions of the noodles in the pan so it holds better when I slice it!
